Glen-Drake Tools, a California toolmaker, offers an especially sleek wheel gauge with a micro-adjustable head. Fans of wheel gauges love the high-tech design of these marking gauges and the clean, crisp line the knife makes in the wood. The
-Mark comes as a complete wheel gauge system with many attractive features:
The micro-adjustable head is the heart of the
-Mark. By sliding the fence assembly until the cutter is relatively close to the mark, you can lock the tail and use the micro-adjuster to set the head exactly where you want it.
-Mark is designed to be used with one hand. With the tail locked there is no chance that the head will move after you have adjusted it and before you lock it in place.
A recess in the head allows the blade to be retracted for storage. With the blade retracted, the
-Mark will also stand on its head, a nice feature for a crowded bench top.
Tool steel blade:
Made from tool steel and hardened to Rc 60, the
-Mark blade is ground and honed after it is heat treated, so it will be sharp and ready to use right out of the box. The blade can also be quickly re-honed so you can keep on making tight, crisp lines.
The "V" slotted rod keeps the head and tail from moving during adjustment, while providing a consistent and secure bed for the thumbscrews. The screws are faced-off to fit snugly in the slot. The slot is stopped on the tail to keep the fence assembly from accidentally sliding off the rod.
The slotted nylon set screw on the underside of the head lets you set the resistance you encounter when you move the assembly and micro-adjust the head.
The thumbscrews act as stops to prevent the
-Mark from rolling around on your bench while it is set but not in use.
The special scoring blade is included with the
-Mark III or available as an option. With it you can easily set the fence and then rapidly score and cut veneer, leather, or any thin material to specific widths (illustrated above on the
By locking 2 mortising cutters on the stem, the
-Mark turns into a mortise gauge. The mortise cutters are included with the
-Mark III or can be added as an option. If you have four mortising cutters, you can mark a double mortise all in one shot.
Fixed Mortising Option:
Glen-Drake has now introduced double bevel paired mortising cutters where both cutters are on a single fixed pre-set mount. 4 common sizes are available individually or as a set.
-Mark reach deeper by screwing on one or both extension rods to the base rod.
There are two basic versions of the
-Mark, a regular one with a 7" stem, and a long version with a 9" stem. The regular one is fine for normal use, but you may want to consider the longer version if you want to also use the gauge with its mortising. The "Deluxe" versions of the
-Mark include one marking blade, one reverse-bevel marking blade, one scoring blade, two single-bevel adjustable mortise blades, a set of fixed-width mortise blades (four sizes), a set of extensions, and an allen key to form a complete kit. Made in USA.
