Stanley Gauge No. 91 Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Marking Gauges
Tool Type: Marking Gauge
Model No: 91
The Stanley marking gauge number 91 is a double rod gauge with a head
which slides on two 6 1/4 inch rods.
Each of the rods has a point at the top end of the pole in order to allow the tool to scribe the wood.
The two rods slide through the head independently allowing the tool to be used as a marking gauge and a mortice gauge.
The rods each have a securing nut located either side of the head.
The gauge is marked with measurements running the length of the rods.
The measurements go up to 5 inches with each inch broke down into increments, some I believe are 1/8" increments and some 1/16" increments.
Possibly the earlier versions were 1/8" increments as seen on another Stanley Rule & Level version.
In the 1920's they were advertised as 1/16" increments.
