Description:
There are good ideas, there are not-so-good ideas, there are really bad ideas, and then there's this thing.

Apparently inventors were running out of tools to combine a marking gage with-- the utility of this piece is questionable at best. The marking point on this piece is tiny and difficult to get at, and the bearing surface is extremely small and irregular. About the only redeeming values of this piece are its humorous aspects.
