You're not far from the truth Bert.

I extracted the URL of the picture that goes with Drawer #6 from the page source and tried to load that directly in my browser. This was the resulting page:

@Derek: Thanks for posting the direct link! I really was looking forward to seeing those pictures. Great work. I might do something like that drawer inlay you made for your chisels myself as soon as I can find the time away from the business. Probably not as nice as you did, but he, I can at least try.   [unsure]   [wink]

If I am seeing it correctly you have both the Veritas types of mortise gauges with fine adjust (although one is the dual rod version). Could I ask you about those? I am thinking of going with one of them, but am wondering about their differences in practice. The older version has the fine adjust mechanism built in the head/fence, which is round. The newer has it at the end of the rod, with an oval head. If I am correct. Sadly, I currently do not have the opportunity to hold both in my hands to compare them. In your experience which mechanism do you prefer? I see the benefit of the oval fence, but don't expect that in itself would be the deciding factor. Any feedback on them would be appreciated.

Veritas only make one mortice gauge, the Dual Marking Gauge. The other Veritas gauge here is a single blade wheel gauge with micro-adjuster. The mortice gauge does not have a fine adjuster (I do not know any that do).

The Dual is useful also in that it can be used as two single gauges. The blades face away from each other. You do not use them simultaneously, but one-at-a-time. Using two together does not enable enough downforce to imprint deeply/clearly enough.

The single arm wheel gauge is very nice in the hand. Earlier I showed two stainless steel versions. Those did not come with fine adjusters. I prefer them that way.

No space for this one :) ...

It seems I used the wrong term to describe the tool. I meant "marking gauge". What I was curious about was the difference between these two on this page at Dieter Schmid's:



New VERITAS Micro-Adjust Wheel Marking Gauge

versus



VERITAS Metric Graduated Micro-Adjust Wheel Marking Gauge

I don't really care about the rod with graduations, but was wondering about the differences in practice concerning the fine adjust mechanism.

I have used the gauge with the (new) fine adjuster at the end of the arm. In fact, I road tested these for Veritas before production. I like them, but they are not as handy to use as a Tite Mark, which may be adjusted with one hand. I have not used the second (and older) Veritas fine adjuster, but it is closer to the TM in concept.

The new adjuster was developed as an add-on accessory. You can purchase the arm complete and fit it to a number of heads. Here I added one to a wheel gauge I designed and made ...

Before the add-on ...



After ...

Thanks for that information. Sadly, due to a bad finger on my dominant hand (I can't bend it anymore after a case of osteomyelitis) one-handed adjustment is no longer an option for me.

I did see on the page at Fine Tools that they sell the rods separately, but hadn't though about the possibility of making one myself. Thinking about it, that would be a nice project to do. Choices choices ...
