I was bidding for these at an auction and won them.The marking/mortice gauge is Marples and it has a fine tune adjustment to tweek on.

The bevel gauge has a neat brass decor on the butterfly nut and is a real keeper.Yes I have a few but not that fancy and the quality is there.No marking though.

Yes it was for a song ,both for $ 12 :D

The site here is a local one and is called

If you go onto collectibles look under Tools.May be you too can find something interesting.


Enjoy the weekend.



Have Fun
Francois
