SOLD: Bridge City DG-2 With Box & Story

SOLD: Once again, here is a Bridge City tool that I owned and had completely forgotten about. It’s the DG-2 Depth Gauge, which normally sells for $129.

This very tool was featured on the cover of Jim Tolpin’s “Measure Twice, Cut Once” (Revised Edition). Our book editor had purchased the tool to use in the cover shoot (a letter to that effect is included with the tool).

Then the tool sat in our shop for years until the company sold it in a surplus sale. I bought the sucker, with its box and instructions. I put it in my tool box about 10 years ago and forgot about it.

It has some blemishes. The brass has some tarnish. But this tool has never been used. So it should clean up easily and nicely.

Price: $80 plus domestic shipping. SOLD

About Tool Sales on My Blog
Please read this if you are interested in buying a tool. Why am I selling these tools? Read this entry before you freak out. There is no “master list” of tools that I can send you. I am working through several piles of tools and will list them when I can.

Want to see only the tools that haven’t sold? Easy. I’ve created a category for that on this blog. Click here and bookmark that page. When you visit that link, you’ll see only the tools that haven’t been sold.

While you can ask me all the questions you like about the tool, the first person to send me an e-mail that says: “I’ll take it,” gets the tool. Simple. To buy a tool, please send me an e-mail at

Payment: I can accept PayPal or a personal check. As soon as the funds arrive, I’ll ship the tool using USPS. If you want insurance, let me know. I’m afraid I can only ship tools in the United States. Shipping internationally is very time-consuming and paperwork-heavy. My apologies in advance on this point.

If you don’t like the tool when you get it, I’ll be happy to refund your money if you return the tool. But postage is on you.
