This tool is perhaps the stupidest marking gage ever patented. It features eighteen retractable fixed points (!), designed such that you can advance two to get a fixed width mortise in a wide variety of sizes.

This tool was so complex that it features a table engraved into a metal plate on the arm, detailing which combinations of screws result in specific mortise widths. I can't imagine anyone thinking this was a good idea.
