Veritas has become a leader in product development, more than meeting the needs of discerning woodworkers. The Veritas team combine talent with modern manufacturing to make each Veritas product your lifelong companion.

  • There are two main problems with a typical marking gauge: you have to tilt it just right to avoid pin chatter and, even then, the pin tends to follow the wood grain, throwing you off your line
  • The Veritas Wheel Marking Gauges solve both problems
  • The hardened steel wheel cutter scribes perfectly at any point of its circumference
  • Since it slices the wood fibres rather than tearing them, 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, making it extremely useful for transferring dimensions such as tenon shoulders and mortise depths
  • The wheel retracts into the face of the gauge for storage and protection
  • The gauges are very easy to set, since each has an internal O-ring to keep light, but constant friction on the rod
  • Due to the number of requests for a micro-adjust feature, Veritas Tools have developed a second model with a slightly longer body fitted with a two-stage collet to allow fine adjustment of the cutting wheel
  • The collet has a fine-pitch thread; one revolution advances or retracts the wheel 1/32" (0,7938 mm), a half turn 1/64" (0,3969 mm), a quarter turn 1/128" (0,198 mm), etc.
  • The knurled thumbscrew then locks the setting
  • The Veritas Tools Micro-Adjust Gauges are available with either a plain rod, or with a metric graduated rod
  • The metric version has mm graduations from 0mm to 150mm
  • This is an superbly made, wonderfully functional  and extremely comfortable  gauge to use
