"New" Veritas Micro-Adjust Wheel Marking Gauge
Ref: 05N3631


Refined and redesigned, this new micro-adjust wheel marking gauge draws on two decades of manufacturing experience, with subtle improvements across the board.

The adjustment mechanism built into the stainless-steel rod is intuitive to use. After setting the approximate projection, you can fine-tune the position of the cutter within a range of 1/4". A fine-pitch internal thread allows slow, careful adjustment, so setting the gauge precisely is a snap.

Locking knobs keep the setting from shifting in use. The eccentric placement of the rod through the brass face and aluminum body ensures a large reference surface for square registration on the stock and helps the gauge resist rolling on a bench top.

Of course, the core of the marking gauge is still the hardened steel wheel cutter, which solves the two main problems of a pin-based marking gauge - the need to tilt it just right to avoid chatter, and the tendency of the pin to follow the wood grain, throwing off your line. It scribes perfectly at any point of its circumference, cutting neat marks even on cross grain.

The wheel's single-sided bevel also pulls the gauge face against the stock, helping to maintain accuracy. Its cutting edge is at the extreme end of the rod, useful for transferring dimensions such as tenon shoulder and mortise depth, and retracts into a hollow in the gauge face for protection.

Veritas Micro Adjust Marking Gauge
Ref: 05N35


The Veritas wheel marking gauge is a great workhorse and excellent value. Its popularity led to the development of a second model that incorporates a micro-adjust feature. It is similar to our standard wheel marking gauge with an anodized aluminum body, brass face, stainless-steel rod and internal O-ring to keep a constant light friction force on the rod. It differs in that the body is slightly longer and is fitted with a two-stage collet that allows micro-adjustment of the cutting wheel. The collet has a fine-pitch thread; one revolution advances or retracts the wheel 1/32", a half turn 1/64", a quarter turn 1/128", etc. The knurled thumbscrew then locks the setting.

The hardened steel wheel cuts wood fibres rather than tearing them, which leaves a clean mark, even on cross grain. The wheel's single-sided bevel also forces the gauge face against the stock, maintaining accuracy. The cutting edge of the wheel is at the extreme end of the shaft, which is useful for transferring dimensions such as tenon shoulder or mortise depth. The wheel retracts into the face of the gauge for storage.

Veritas Dual Marking Gauge
Ref: 05N7001


Set two measurements at once with two independently adjustable rods, alternate between them when transferring or marking repetitive dimensions.

The Veritas Dual Marking Gauge is actually a cutting gauge. It has two fixed round cutters on each stem. The stems can be fully retracted into the gauge head..

A clever feature is that the wheels are set with opposing bevels so you can always set the bevel in the waste of the cut.

Veritas Shaft Clamp for Dual Marking Gauge
Ref: 05N7005


On occasions, it may an advantage to lock the relative position of the two rods on the Veritas® Dual Marking Gauge, such as when a project requires a constant mortise size, but different offsets. The shaft clamp lets you lock the relative position of the cutters while still being able to adjust the fence for offset. This allows you to preserve identical mortise or tenon sizing when joining parts of different thicknesses or when adding a reveal, since it prevents the cutter settings from shifting while the fence is being repositioned.

Machined to precise tolerances to prevent binding on the rods, the 13mm long collar is made from extruded aluminium, with a turned brass thumbscrew that tightens onto the marking gauge’s steel guide rods without marring their surfaces. Made in Canada.

Veritas Marking/Mortice Gauge Heads
Ref: 15N0101


Though designed for use with their Veritas® Wheel Marking Gauges, these gauge heads are a simple retrofit for any marking gauge with a 5/16" diameter shaft.

Made from carbon steel, the 5/8" diameter wheel cutters will scribe at any point in their circumference and slice rather than tear fibers for clean, accurate cuts. The single-bevel cutters are usable in-line for marking parallel lines, or with bevels facing for sure mortise sizing and chisel registration. Secured with integral set screws, the blades can be set as close as 3/8" apart. The included shaft collar registers against the marking gauge fence to ensure the shaft remains parallel to the workpiece, preventing accidental tilting of the cutters in use; this is especially useful when scribing large offsets from the fence.

Supplied as a pair of cutters with a shaft collar, hex key and instructions.

Veritas Trammel Points
Ref: 05N5005


Usable on any rule up to 1/4" thick, these narrow-bodied trammels can be set to reproduce radii as little as 9/16". The removable points score clear lines on any wood, and are also effective on aluminum, brass, bronze and mild steel. With the points removed, the trammel bodies double as square gauges, clamping onto a square to make repetitive angle marking easy. Inspired by an antique trammel set found at a woodworking show, this version is made of stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance, and has knurled sections to make the tips easier to remove. Each is about 1/2" in diameter and 2½" long overall.

Made in Canada.

Veritas Beam Compass Heads
Ref: 05N5001


Using a regular compass for small circles is OK, but for projects involving large circles or arcs, our beam compass heads are ideal.

The aluminum heads clamp onto a piece of wood between 5/8" and 3/4" thick, creating a compass whose radius is limited only by the length of stock you have at hand. Each brass clamping knob holds the head securely to the beam using a trapped pin that prevents pivoting and shifting. The pins withdraw as the clamping knob is backed off. The heads need only be clamped approximately as one of the points has an eccentric tip that can be used to achieve 1/8" of fine adjustment. Both points have been hardened and can be used to mark hard surfaces such as steel plate, sheet metal or aluminum.

Also included is a small pencil for marking wood and wallboard. The heads, points and pencil all pack into the slim tubular hard-shell case for storage in a toolbox.

A simple yet highly useful layout tool.

Veritas Carpenters Gauge
Ref: 05N3601


Specifically designed to be carried in an apron or pocket, this is both a direct-reading compass and a marking gauge, two things that carpenters frequently need but find hard to carry.

It has a rotatable head, which locks vertically for use and horizontally for storage and tip protection. It is direct reading, both for radius and diameter, in inches and centimetres. If you have ever measured a dryer vent pipe at 5-7/16" diameter and needed to cut a hole for it, you'll know why direct-setting diameters are such an advantage. Similarly, if you have ever had to put a radius on a corner, you know why a combination compass/marking gauge is so valuable. You set your radius, locate the center using the gauge, then rotate the head and scribe your line with the compass.

The gauge is also useful in a cabinet shop because of the direct-reading feature (substantially reduces errors), as well as for the fast corner radiusing just described. Made of brass, stainless steel and high-impact ABS, it is 7-1/2" long overall, and will scribe circles up to 12" diameter.
