Topic tags/keywords: question tip

Hey everyone, So I have enough lumber that is or will be scrap, unless… there is enough for off spring projects of lager ones.
I am planning on making a chisel hammer and a marking gauge.
I want to know if anyone knows where to get the brass hardware and pins for the marking gauge? Any help or advice is appreciated.
Thanks again,
FMG

I tend to buy brass from McMaster-Carr. They have high prices but are very convenient.

I just made a marking gauge and I found the brass hardware at Home Depot.

FMG, I used brass from a couple of junker marking gauges. Took all the brass off and made the new wood pieces. I have them listed with the process in my projects. I am sure I paid much less for the junkers than I would have paid (if I could have found) new pieces. Old ones are always on Ebay for next to nothing.

Good luck!
