My first marking gauge. The stock is guayubira (Patagonula americana) and the beam palo blanco (Calycophyllum multiflorum).
The washer is made of steel, so the blade is longer sharp. Unfortunately did not get a smaller diameter washer.
Not yet used it, when put to the test will update information regarding their ease of use or not.
Later put the construction process on the blog. It’s amazing the amount of things that need to be resolved to do something as simple …
Greetings.

Mi primer gramil. Cuerpo de guayubira (Patagonula americana) y varilla de palo blanco (Calycophyllum multiflorum).
La arandela es de acero, para que el filo tenga mayor duración. Lamentablemente no conseguí una arandela de menor diámetro.
Aún no lo usé, cuando lo ponga a prueba actualizaré información respecto a su facilidad o no de uso.
Más adelante pondré el proceso de construcción en el blog. Es increible la cantidad de cosas que es necesario resolver para hacer algo tan simple…
Saludos.

I also love the design. perhaps a replacement for the wingnut – made from wood with a threaded insert.

Nice job! I’m curious to know how the steel wahser works.

Amo a su modelo. Quisas un otro parte por el wingnut de madera y con un threaded insert.
Buen trabajo. Estoy curioso sobre el arandela de acero y si sear duro. Perdoneme porque no conozco muchas palabras especiales de woodworking.

Thanks Ken.
Mike, I cant find a threaded insert in my contry, but is a great idea. In this gauge, the steel washer is secure, dont spin. You may to roll the tool a little during the marking. I think the whell can spin in the markings gauges avaliable in the market (your market, in my country nothig is avaliable, in terms of quality hand tool). Thanks for your interest.

Bien trabajo.
