The Veritas Standard Wheel Marking Gauge is a great workhorse. The hardened steel wheel cutter scribes perfectly at any point of its circumference. Since it cuts wood fibers rather than tears, it marks cleanly, even on cross grain. The wheel’s single-sided bevel also pulls the gauge face against the stock, maintaining accuracy. Its cutting edge is at the extreme end of the rod, useful for transferring dimensions such as tenon shoulder and mortise depth. It has a non-graduated rod.
