Make a Marking Gauge

طريقة عمل اداة شنكار او اداة تحديد الحواف

In this video I make a marking gauge from a 10mm steel rod, a 30mm steel hex bar, 5mm thick brass, some screws and a washer.

For the cutting part of the marking gauge I used a normal washer that I’ve attached to a blot with two nuts and chucked it in a drill to sharpen it on a grinder. I then used stone to do the final sharpening. For the glue up I’ve just used regular 5 minute two part epoxy.

Very useful tool for any woodworker, especially for those that use a lot of hand tools. It doesn’t take a lot of time to make it and you pay a fraction of a cost of a new one.
