Veritas Dual Marking Gauge

by Veritas

Veritas Dual Marking Gauge features two independently adjustable rods, which mean this gauge can scribe both sides of a mortice at once. The length of each ground stainless-steel rod is very precise.

By registering the tails against either side of a chisel, you can set the cutters to span the exact width of the chisel blade.

Projection is easy to set, an internal O-ring keeps light but constant friction on each rod; a thumbscrew locks the setting. One rod has its cutting edge at the extreme end of the rod, making it useful for transferring dimensions or as a depth gauge.

As with all Veritas marking gauges, the wheel cutters avoid the problems of wandering that can occur with pin-style marking gauges. They cut wood fibres rather than tear them and they mark cleanly, even on the cross-grain.

These hardened steel wheel cutters scribe perfectly at any point of their circumference. They are oriented with the cutting bevels facing in opposite directions, so you can always mark your line with the bevel facing the waste side of any cut. Each cutter is fully retractable for safe storage or to permit use with a single cutter.

The rods project off-centre from the anodised aluminium body, which helps the gauge resist rolling on a workbench and maximises the area of the 50mm diameter brass face that can register against the workpiece. 190mm overall, the gauge has a setting range from zero to 145mm.

The aluminium housing has a brass face and the rods are stainless steel.

Great to deal with

Great service, competitive pricing. Highly recommended.
Quality kit, not made in China.


Very well made and accurate

Great piece of kit

The marking gauge is very well made and has a nice feel to it.
It took a little bit of getting used to, because the technique for using it is rather different to that of a traditional pin type gauge, bur once that is mastered it gives very crisp marks and cuts through the grain, rather than following it.

Pricey, but I suppose you have to pay for quality.


Brilliant tool for woodworking
