Quangsheng Marking Gauge

34.9

Turned from solid brass with a hardwood infill, this achingly beautiful and superbly accurate marking gauge from Quangsheng is around twice the weight of comparable tools.

The stainless steel bar with accurate etched graduations makes what engineers would describe as a 'close sliding fit' within the body of the gauge.

The fence is recessed, allowing the cutter to be withdrawn safely inside the head and it also has a very discrete micro adjustment mechanism. Loosen the collar on the end furthest from the fence by rotating it clockwise (left hand thread) and hold it in place with your thumb. The head can then be rotated, 1 turn = 1/16", to align the fence with the graduations. Lock the head in place and spin the collar up out of the way.

The 12mm circular blade is designed not to rotate as the tool is drawn through the cut, the amount of play required for the wheel to turn would diminish the accuracy of the mark by a similar amount.

Overall Length: 182mm

Quality feel, good buy.
Compares well to the Veritas equivalent, slightly more heft to it, wheel needs sharpening like all blades.
Dual scale 5 inches/120 mm, need my glasses (like always!) and good light but I can read it OK.

Beautifully made but poorly marked scale.
Only drawback is the inscribed scale in that it is too faint to be able to be useable - pity. Otherwise it is a delight.

Well made tool
This is a fantastically put together tool. It has a nice weight and is a pleasure to use. Couple of negative points; The scale though perfectly accurate is a little too faint to read comfortably. I really cant work out how the micro adjuster is supposed to work. Regardless I would highly recommend.

Very robust Marking Gauge
The gauge is very stable. It fills really good and the body is very handy to scribe, also in small wooden parts. It makes quite easy to control de pressure against the wood.

Micro adjust
There is a great video on youtube explaining how the micro adjust works, well worth watching. Additionally, I added a small reference mark on the face of the gauge so I can now accurately judge each complete turn of the micro adjustment. Hope this helps some people.

A pleasure to use
A very well made gauge which is a pleasure to use. Cutter was in need of a hone and you'll need good eyesight to see the markings on the shaft, but would be good value at twice the price.

Great gauge
A lovely gauge that works well now that it's been sharpened - it arrived rather dull. Highly recommended.

This marking gauge is a joy to hold and to look at. It makes me want to go and make something just for the pleasure of using such quality tools. I am getting seriously geeky!

Great
Its a beautiful piece of kit. also very comfortable in the hand. It is also a very precise tool. I used to use a pencil and a ruler to mark all my wood, since I got this tool, its easier, more precise and a wonderful tool to use.

Quality Tool
Looking for a new gauge and this beauty came up and just looked awesome. Watched the you tube video and decided I needed one. The Gauge turned up quickly and well packged. This gauge has a really nice feel and weight to it (solid piece of kit) would definitely recommend.

Very functional (and quite pretty)
This works really well as a basic gauge. I have a few different gauges and this and one other are my favourites. I don't find the micro-adjust or scale useful (never found a need for either), but equally neither get in the way of its use. It holds its setting well and adjusts smoothly.

Quangsheng Marking Gauge
This in all honesty has to be the best wheeled marking gauge I have used.
The circular blade is larger than most, it really gives you a nice deep crisp line.
I think a lot of people will end up with more than one of these.

Superb marking gauge.
I was so impressed with the first Quangsheng marking gauge, I bought another! Beautifully made, accurate and sharp marking gauge. It's been very handy having two of these in the workshop.

As good as a veritas gauge the micro adjust is left hand thread and workes well
