Rockler Wheel Marking Gauge

Item #

Rating:
82% of 100

This versatile gauge lets you make perfect hairline layout marks both with and across wood grain. The hardened steel cutting wheel is beveled on one side, creating a natural pull that forces the face of the gauge against your work piece for straight, wander-free marks. Features a solid brass body, knurled lock nut, graduated scales and a recess to protect the cutter in storage.

Features:
  • Shaft has graduated scales (1 mm and 1/8 inch increments) for easy reference
  • Doubles as a depth gauge
  • Great for quick measurement transfers
  • Wheel retracts into face of the gauge for protection and easy vertical storage
  • Free-spinning wheel cuts wood fibers - doesn't tear them
  • Designed for comfortable one-handed operation
  • Balanced feel

Simple and functional.
Marking wood for sawing, routing, drilling and etc. is such a basic task it only made sense to add this tool to my collection. With a workpiece properly secured I can use this wheel marker with one hand. Small workpieces might require two hands but it beats trying to fiddle around with a measuring device and a knife, awl, pencil, whatever while attempting to hold all three items just to mark a line. Price is right too.

Somehow I lost my old one and this was on sale at the right time and the right price. Every woodworker/carpenter should have one.

Quality marking gauge
The marking gauge is constructed of heavy brass and steel, the cutter needed to be honed on a fine grit stone to get a better edge to cut the growth rings on the end grains of soft wood and the screw that secures the cutter protrudes past the cutter so if you need to use it as a depth gauge you must subtract the difference. I do more traditional wood working and this tool meets my needs perfectly. Over all I am satisfied with the tool and plan on taking it with me to my next class at Roy Underhill's woodworking school this week.

Love this thing! Set it up and go, all mortises are consistently the same and a huge time saver. Wish i had used one sooner.

Is wheel replaceable?
Warner K on Jun 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If Rockler or someone else sells a wheel, yes.
Can I replace the screw that holding the cutter for ones to recess into the cutter rather than protrudes above the cutter...?
Carlos Otto C on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Drill press + countersink bit + new screw.. I don't use mine as a depth gauge, so I don't care about the screw
where can I get replacement cutting wheels ?
ken k on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I haven't gotten to point of needing one. So I am sorry I don't know.
