It is not old, but I have not been able to find any information on it. I did a google image
search for mortising gauges and nothing was found.

It is made very well- solid brass hardware and Rosewood, I think. Does anyone know the maker or dealer?

Thanks swirt. I feel stupid. I have probably looked at everything in their catalog several times over the years.

I have pretty much the same thing from Lee Valley. I did not like it and I don’t use it. The blades for it suck and I had a hell of a time getting the things to seat properly in it.

Have your say...
