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. This is a miniature, with a 6" long stem, of their regular size gauge and will prove extremely useful for modelmakers and anyone working in small sizes. The Tite-Mark Mini comes as a complete wheel gauge system with many attractive features:
The micro-adjustable head is the heart of the Tite-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.
The Tite-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 Tite-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 Tite-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 Tite-Mark from rolling around on your bench while it is set but not in use.
Fixed Mortising Option:
Glen-Drake has now introduced double bevel paired mortising cutters where both cutters are on a single fixed pre-set mount. 3 common sizes are available individually or as a set.
The Deluxe kit includes a Titemark Mini and a set of all the mortising blades.
Made in USA.
