Description:
Another of the classic patent gages. An extremely elegant design, in which an H-shaped bar holds two independent heads. This simple design allows a single compact gage to hold two distinct settings.

This gage was produced for many years, in several variants. The earliest versions used a plain rosewood or boxwood bar, which caused wear problems because the locking screws bit into the wooden bar. Later models added an inlaid brass strip to provide a more solid wearing point for the screw. Also late in production, these were offered with a brass sliding bar on one side, allowing it to be used for marking mortises.
