Marking Gauges

An original design by Florip Toolworks. Your cut is only as accurate as your layout line.

Gauges are temporarily unavailable….I need to make some more.

The Little One


  • Flat on the fence allows the user to strike a line on material 1/8” thick while it is supported on a work surface. Also prevents rolling.
  • Shaft length is 5 1/2”
  • 1/2” O-1 cutter
  • 1.5” wide fence
  • Fence is counterbored to allow full retraction of the cutter.
  • Shaft material choices- grade 5 titanium, beryllium copper, stainless steel

Note: Beryllium copper is a copper alloy that has strength characteristics similar to steel.

“The Big One”

I designed and built this gauge because I wasn’t happy with the generic wheel marking gauge I had been using. My main complaints were:

  • Small fence - Would allow the gauge to pivot as I marked my work.
  • Round fence - Allowed the gauge to roll off the workbench.
  • Poor fit - The cutter would come loose from the shaft and the fence had a sloppy fit.
  • Overall feel - I wasn’t confident in the tools ability to put down consistent layout lines.

Below is a list of features that make up the Florip Toolworks gauge.

  • Micro adjust with 5/8” travel.
  • 2” wide fence to provide a solid footprint on your workpiece.
  • Hexagonal fence to prevent the gauge from rolling off the bench.
  • With just under 9” of length, this marking gauge will tackle most f your layout needs.
  • Easy to sharpen O1 tool steel cutter.
  • Choice of stainless steel, beryllium copper, or grade 5 titanium shafts.
  • It’s often called “beefy”.
