Traditional marking gauges look good to the eye, but they don’t always fit comfortably in your hand. Two marking gauges by Hamilton Woodworks are shaped so you can lay a precise line with ease – your finger pressure goes right where you need it for a steady stroke.

The gauges come in two sizes – the small one has a 4″-long beam; the large one a 6″ beam – so you can pick the tool that suits your hand. But there’s more that’s unique about these gauges than just the different sizes.
