    Edwin; you shouldn't cause any strife mentioning power tools within the hands tools forum. Very few of us restrict ourselves to hand tools only. A Bench Grinder is a power tool. A Cordless Drill is a power tool, and so on.

    Neanderthal is by name only.

    You're missing out, I love mine. Use it for setting up the height of my table saw blade as well as a general depth gauge.

    My Odd Jobs gets used sometimes as a depth gauge.

    Mostly it is used like a marking gauge with a pencil. It is also great for finding centers on a piece like any other gauge.

    Another thought, sometimes it is used for setting my bandsaw fence.

    Having read the posts I did not see anyone say whether the Taytools beam on the gauge is stainless steel. Are the beam and two steel knobs stainless like they are on the Tite- Mark?

    Another option, and perhaps a better approach if your classes are filled with beginners, is to use a combination square to mark out for dovetails. Beginners likely won't have the necessary tools or ability to ensure a perfectly square edge to be marked by the wheel gauge. With a combo square, you'd be able to teach the importance of a reference edge. Plus everyone needs one (just one) good combo square.

    I own 2 Tite-Mark marking gauges and can remember a time when they weren't yet on the market. Glen did us all a favor by bringing these to market and AFAIK there's still no equal available. I hope he's able to keep producing them for a long time.

    Not sure how these are so different than the Veritas. Can you explain? Thanks.

    I only have the standard Veritas marking gauge (without a micro adjust), so can't say authoritatively of how the Veritas micro-adjust differs from the Tite-Mark. I'm going on reviews of the Veritas micro-adjusting gauge that suggest that setting it is a 2-hand operation. The convenience of the Tite-Mark is that I can hold my work in the left hand, and set the micro-adjust precisely with my right hand.

    Perhaps someone with the Veritas Micro-Adjust gauge can confirm?

    Here is a comparison of the two:

    The Tite-Mark is easier to set. It is also less likely to roll off of a bench due to the set screws size.

    I had a Veritas gauge originally, bought a Titemark, used both for a while and sold the Veritas. Why? Tactile feel of the Titemark was better, with the micro adjust, easier to set-up, didn't roll off the bench and was just easier to use!

    Since that time, I believe Lee Valley made significant changes to their gauge, and though I have not used one, those that have use it and the Titemark, say the advantages of one over the other have disappeared. I can't recall if it was this forum or another, but I posted my current most favored gauge is the Lee Valley stainless dual stem marking gauge. It works!
