Our precision Sliding Bevel Gauges are some of the finest available. The gauge features a unique locking mechanism that solidly holds the blade in the desired position when needed while also allowing for precise, adjustable drag for setting the initial angle. This is not a re-make of an old patent, but rather a unique design that allows for a blade centered symmetrically in the body, a fine adjustment and solid locking. The body is carefully machined from high strength aluminum and then finished with either a hard ceramic coating called Cerakote, or with an anodized finish. This gives a cool, smooth feel in the hand while the wood infill gives a complimentary warm touch. The sliding bevel gauges are a delight to use and sure to become favorite tools. There are many options allowing you to customize your gauge to your liking including size, body color, infill type, and hardware options. The blade is available in satin finished hardened stainless steel or with a black ceramic coating. Please be aware that the black finish on the blade will scuff, mark and wear over time giving a nicely used patina :) A fresh look can be somewhat restored with a wipe from a protective oil such as Howard's oil/wax or jajoba oil. If you are looking for an infill other than those listed, please inquire first before choosing the custom infill option so we can talk about availability and lead times. Only a small number of the many combinations are shown in the photos. See also the section on squares for more pictures of combinations.
