Anyone know where I can get a reasonable mortice gauge (ie where the sliding pin is adjusted via a screw) for under £40 (which seems a little steep)?

Cheers

This one by "Crown or Marples" is reduced at the moment (to 29euro), if you don't mind what Dieter Schmid describes as "minor defects such as wood tear-out".

I have bought from that site before, and have been impressed by their service and the honesty of the opinions they express on their website.

not quite but this one that showed up as an alternative looks along the right lines. I've also found this one. Does anyone know anything about either of these?

Hi Alan,

I bought the Joseph Marples Trial 1 Mortice Gauge and was very pleased with the quality of build and the screw mechanism. There was a review of guages in Practical Woodworking - July. The Marples Trial 1 scored "Best on Test".

Cheers,

Howard
