Veritas Marking & Transfer Tool
Ref: 05J09.01


The great advantage of this tool is that it lets you accurately mark or transfer several positions at once from a common reference edge.

Used like an adjustable, reusable story stick, it is particularly well suited for any layout work that must be reliably reproduced, such as when marking box and lid hinge gain positions or left and right slide locations in a cabinet carcass.It is also a simple way to consistently mark off knob or handle locations on drawers or cabinet doors.

The basic tool includes four 3" long marking heads, a 12" stainless-steel rod
and a brass foot. The marking heads have a single straight reference edge (reversible by flipping the head) and can be locked at any position along the rod. The brass foot can be used on either end of the rod and is reversible for outside or inside measurements.

Additional pairs of marking heads and 12" rod sections can be used to extend the tool as needed - the rods have a male thread at one end and a female thread at the other.

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 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.

Beam Compass
Ref: 05N3001


Ordinary compasses just don't cut it in the shop; a beam compass (or trammel) is much more practical.

Using a single beam section, the Veritas® beam compass deals with circles from 1½" to 24" in diameter. Additional sections take you up to 80" (203cm) for circular tables, rockers, arches, etc. It has carbide-tipped points that readily scribe metal as well as wood, although the pencil head is usually used for scribing wood. A micro-adjust feature quickly gives accurate settings.

All of this comes in a fitted wooden case that even includes a small brass centre pivot disc for use where it is important not to mar work. The beams are steel and the fittings are solid brass.

Veritas Poly-Gauge
Ref: 05N1401


Many find it hard to set equipment for a square cut; they simply give up on pentagons, hexagons, octagons etc. This gauge can be used to set table saws, jointers, radial arm saws, bandsaws & drill presses. Used flat, the gauge is ideal for setting mitre fences or for layout work.

Used vertically, the slotted knob becomes a stabilizing base that holds the gauge erect so that you have both hands free for adjusting & locking a fence or blade.

It is ideal for picture framing, tubs & planters, glued up cylinders for turning - any job that requires precise equipment setting for 4,5,6,8 or 12 sided mitres. Brass & zinc aluminium.
