I haven’t used the Tite-Mark gauge but I do own the Veritas dual-shaft which I use as my primary marking gauge. Personally I think the the Veritas is great but when using both shafts for mortise and tenons it can get a little clunky but the slight clunkiness may outweigh having to change blades if you want to use the mortise blades on the Tite-Mark. When not using the second shaft on the Veritas I don’t even notice it’s there. The only advantage I see on the Tite-Mark really is the mirco adjust which is nice but I”m not sure it’s worth the extra money, not to mention the fact that you have to shell out an extra $30 for the mortise blade set. Hope this helps!
