SOLD: Marking and cutting gauges are the backbone of a hand-tool shop. So I always try to keep abreast of what is available. I purchased this Canadian-made Cullen gauge in 2009 to test it out. If I didn’t already own a forest of TiteMarks, this gauge would be at the top of my list.
It has an insanely high level of fit and finish, as good as anything available today in gauges. The knife is sharp. The head locks square to the beam. And the tool is comfortable in the hand.

I paid almost $55 for it (full retail, naturally).
Price: $35 plus domestic shipping.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
