I need a marking gauge, it’s fairly high up on the list to get. I’ve been recommended to build my own and probably will. However, when I watch The Schwarz use his I begin to wonder since it looks so easy to use.

So who uses it? Who didn’t like it when they tried it? What are the pros and cons of the thing?

Also, anybody use the tenon cutters on the thing?

Hi Mark,

I have a Tite-mark and a Veritas cutting gauge. I do like using them. They both mark the wood well and fit in the hand comfortably. I find the Tite-mark feels better in my hand. It seems to have a better balance and the adjustment mechanism is easier to me. I have only used the tenon cutters a couple times. They were fairly easy to set up but took a little time to get just right. Overall. if I were to buy one again, it would be the Tite-mark.

here again, its one of those things I would rather make than buy.. Just me I guess.. mostly because I am
CHEAP but also because I like to use tools I make.. they fit me perfectly, they work great, and nobody has one like it.. and again I am CHEAP..
