Carpenter’s Gauge

The VERITAS Carpenter’s Gauge have been specifically designed to be carried in an apron or pocket, this is both a direct-reading compass and a marking gauge, two things that carpenters frequently need but find hard to carry.

It has a rotatable head, which locks vertically for use and horizontally for storage and tip protection. It is direct reading, both for radius and diameter, in inches and centimetres. If you have ever measured a dryer vent pipe at 5-7/16" diameter and needed to cut a hole for it, you'll know why direct-setting diameters are such an advantage. Similarly, if you have ever had to put a radius on a corner, you know why a combination compass/marking gauge is so valuable. You set your radius, locate the centre using the gauge, then rotate the head and scribe your line with the compass.

The gauge is also useful in a cabinet shop because of the direct-reading feature (substantially reduces errors), as well as for the fast corner radiusing just described. Made of brass, stainless steel and high-impact ABS, it is 7-1/2" long overall, and will scribe circles up to 12" diameter.

Supplied blister pack, which shows detailed instruction on how to use the carpenter’s gauge and comes complete with a VERITAS pencil ready to use as shown in the picture below

COMMENTS

I already knew this was a really good site from using it last time after looking at a lot of others. The prices and service were great so used it again, and will do next time, without thinking twice. This time _I_ made a mistake with my order which Dave then dispatched so fast that I didn't have time to correct it before it was on the way. He then sorted out _my_ mistake so brilliantly and so fast that it would have been superlative response if it had been his fault, let alone mine. Phenomenal!
