An intriguing gift, these are 1:3 scale working models of our wheel marking and dual marking gauges, the latest in our line of miniature tools.
Each is 2 1/4" long, and they weigh just under 1/2 oz and 3/4 oz respectively. Their size and the control it allows makes it feel like you're scribing a line with your fingers instead of a tool.
Like their full-size counterparts, they cut (not tear) fibers for clear marks even on cross grain, and have an eccentric reference face for good registration. The cutting edge is at the end of the rod so you can transfer measurements accurately.
With the dual marking gauge, you can set two measurements at once, so you can quickly alternate between them when transferring or marking repetitive dimensions.
Made of stainless steel with brass reference faces, they come with a French-fitted embossed leatherette box that holds both gauges.
