The Henry Eckert Marking Gauge – Micro Adjust has all the features of our Regular gauge except for the addition of Micro Adjust. You simply slide the rod through the fence until the blade (s) or pencil is approximately in the right spot and lock the thumbscrew furtherest from the fence, adjust and fine tune the setting with the brass knurled barrel then lock it down with the second stainless thumbscrew. Each 1/4 turn of the knurled barrel is a 1/4 mm movement in length, full turn is 1 mm movement, very precise. There are two fine lines etched on the top to give you a guide of how far you have moved the length.
The solid feel and heft of the tool ensures your blade stays on track for the perfect straight line. You are in control. The fence is in figured Mana Gum & brass, the rod is marine grade stainless steel, blade is our PMA11V Powdered Metallurgy Tool Steel. When drawn back, the blade nestles neatly into the fence for protection.
The fence is 90mm wide, 57mm high & around 22mm thick. The shaft is 230mm long.
Is delivered in a solid 1400 Fibreboard box with a six compartment segmented tray for accessories.
System accessories (purchased separately or in kits) can transform the Henry Eckert Marking/Cutting Gauge into a Pencil Gauge, Mortise Gauge, Panel Gauge, Beam Compass or Trammel Gauge.
