The Tite-Mark cutting gauge showed up on my desk in 2001 wrapped in plastic and shrouded in questions about its true value as a woodworking tool.

With an $80 price tag, it was the most expensive gauge I’d ever seen. At the time, all the inexpensive but serviceable marking gauges cost about $12. Premium ones pushed the $30 mark. But $80? No one would want to pay that much.

Well, as it turned out, I did.
