Digital Wheel Marking, Height and Depth Gauge 3-in-1
Rutlands Part No. DK6755
• Mark perfectly straight lines... as well as set accurate heights, depths and distances
• Designed with a very large and easily readable LCD display
• Displays increments of 0.01mm, 0.005" and 64ths of fractions
• Hardened marking wheel slices through grain rather than tearing, or following the grain
• Use for a whole range of height and depth measuring and even as a digital ruler
• Robust, aluminium finish gives the unit a sturdy construction and professional feel
This digital three in one tool has been specifically designed for woodworkers who will need to mark perfect straight lines on their stock, set blade or router bit heights, or the distance from the router or table saw fence, and even measure mortice depths.
Designed with a very large and easily readable LCD display, the innovative patent-pending tool has three settings of measurements: millimetres, inches or fractions, each with extraordinary accuracy displayed in increments of 0.01mm, 0.005" and 64ths of fractions. The hardened alloy wheel marking gauge is significantly recognised as being more accurate than its pin counterpart, which tends to wander with the grain of the wood. The wheel will slice through and over the grain to help mark a perfectly straight line in your stock, making it equally as ideal for the amateur and professional woodworker.
The adjustable depth stop allows for mortice depths to be measured. Once the depth is found, the stop enables you to mark a consistent measurement on all of your mortices, for increased precision. With the mortice depth stop removed, the tool can be used for a whole range of height and depth measuring and even as a digital ruler.
Find its a pain to set accurately (may be its me). It could do with a micro adjuster. Other than that its excellent. Easy to read display mine came with a spare battery. I can't see me using any other gauge than this, brilliant.

Arrived next day. Brilliant. The disc is dished so it can cut in a rebate. . Digital readout is so much easier than a ruler. Readout in fractions is ideal for sorting my imperial drills (and anything else imperial). I can use it as a conversion table. I lay the drill on the bench and use it as a depth gauge to measure the drill diameter. My digital vernier doesn't do fractions and can stay in the metal work shop. This stays in my woodwork shop. Ideal for marking out. Spare battery and strong construction. I am delighted with it.

Arrived with a dead battery so I have knocked one star of my review (Rutlands did send a new battery out the next day though). Apart from that an excellent piece of kit that has proved invaluable both as a depth gauge and marking gauge.

I have a couple of Veritas wheel marking gauges that function very well. This one though is my favourite as the front face that abuts the work piece is very large and gives excellent stability when you slide it back and forth and its quick and easy to zero.

This is high end quality that I can strongly recommend. It is very well balanced and made from machined and precision components.It makes marking so much faster as you can simply transfer your measurements without getting a rule out. Great for setting router cutter height.
