Marking gauges are great for layout work because they provide a more crisp clean line than a pencil.
This iGaging digital wheel gauge does everything a traditional marking gauge does plus you have a digital readout.
But, this would be a top quality marking gauge, even without the digital.
It has a generous fence, smooth operation and a substantial feel.
The large clear display reads either in 1000th of an inch, fractional inch or 100th of a millimeter.
The display shuts off after 5 minutes of inactivity to preserve the battery.
You will find a digital marking gauge to be surprisingly useful.
When you know a previous setting you can return directly to it.
Knowing the width of a board you can divide by 2 to mark the exact center.
Since you can zero the readout at any point, for mortising you can mark one side of the mortise then zero the gauge, move its cutter the width of the mortise and mark the other side of the mortise from the same face.
There is no better wheel marking gauge on the market.
