They don't move at all if working properly, and are a pleasure to use..... pair of wooden marking gauges I had beforehand used to move quite a bit.
These ARE the alternatives and they aren't as good as the trad woody.A good Titemark has a pair of locking screws and even the 20 quid knockoff which is a bit sloppy is proper secure when tightened down, just not as slick to adjust like the Veritas.
The Veritas I bought as it has the flush cutting tip, and offset stem, which doubles up as a sort of router plane, which isn't as solidly locking as it could be, but I guess I'm just being a brute and misusing the tool! not really though.
There is a market here for someone to make a better alternative, ...
n.b. it's a good idea to half half a dozen of them as it can be really useful to have them left at the various settings you might use, throughout the job from start to finish
