Gauge Your Reaction...

Hi Folks
I'm deep in preparations for my trip to the US for the Handworks show in Iowa. I'm incredibly excited about this one - all the hand tool makers of the Western world will be there. So I'm buzzed about meeting up with old friends and meeting people I've only communicated with via email. It should be quite something!

So a quick photo of some of some of the stock I've been preparing. These are the biggest batch of the Superior Marking Gauge we've built to date - a mix of Rosewood, Pear, Birdseye Maple, Wenge, Goncalo Alves and Box wood. The response to the new gauge has been brilliant, with many happy users reporting back how pleased they are with it. Having one gauge that will take a pin, knife and pencil makes for versatile layout tool that you will always find yourself reaching for.
