Les Outils Cullen 31A Marking/Cutting Gauge
Les Outils Cullen marking, slitting and mortising gauges are made in limited runs by a small shop in Quebec, Canada. The owner personally makes each gauge to the highest possible standards and tests every gauge before sending out. Many regard the Les Outils Cullen gauges as the best available anywhere. The fit and finish on these gauges is superb. These gauges are made from South American Bloodwood, an extremely hard, tight-grained and stable hardwood that takes a lustrous finish. These gauges feature large brass wear plates on the faces, stems with accurate graduations marks in inches (0-5") and a large 3/4" knurled solid brass thumb screw that securely locks the head square on the stem without denting. The locking screw has unique internal spring-loaded mechanism that keeps light and constant friction on the stem during adjustments to prevent inadvertent movement.
Cutting / Slitting Gauge: Comes with a 1/4" wide by 1/16" thick radius hardened cutter that can be easily adjusted and reversed quickly changing the gauge from a marking to a slitting gauge. The knife comes sharp and will leaves a very fine and deep line with minimal pressure. Knife can easily be resharpened.
