    Awesome Marking Gauge

    Posted by Trevor Morris on 1st May 2020

    This is a beautiful, well made marking gauge. You can see and feel the quality. The smart design keeps the fence against the edge of the work piece, unlike other designs that tend to wonder when more pressure is applied. This is my go-to marking gauge now and I'm more than satisfied.

    Outstanding tool

    Posted by mark on 25th Mar 2015

    I purchased this Hamilton gauge (my second) to replace a Tite-mark gauge.

    While the Tite-mark has a micro-adjustment feature that can be very handy, I nevertheless found the Hamilton gauge to be far superior, primarily due to the fact that the beam, once fixed in position, does not move, which to me is fundamental to the operation of a marking gauge.

    Maybe it was just me, but I often found that the brass knobs on the Tite-mark had loosened up and the blade had unexpectedly shifted in or out. Very frustrating.

    The Hamilton gauges operate very smoothly, and can create a much deeper line than the Tite-mark.

    As for the micro-adjustment feature on the Tite-mark, the position of the brass knurled knob needs to be fiddled with occasionally for it to work. Also very frustrating when all I want to do is quickly mark a line.

    The Hamilton gauges do the one task they are designed for very, very well and I am very happy with them.
