These are some pics of the gauge I sent to Waho6o9. I made it from padauk and brass. I think it turned out pretty well, although I wasn’t very happy with the length of the blade, and I screwed up cutting the mortise and had to make a small patch for it. He seems to like it though so it was all worth it.

I also made a quick dovetailed box to store it and as a shipping crate.

Very nice wood and brass combination, Wally. Nice touch with the shipping/storage box too.

The padauk and brass look great together. Nice job, Wally!

Looks good. The brass is really nice on these gauges. I wish I would have added some to mine now.

Wally I like this. The solid brass bottom of the fence brings balance to the gauge. I don’t usually like solid brass fence faces but it really works with this wood and design. Solid craftsmanship.
