  • Squares & Bevels
    from Crown Tools featuring a solid brass blade 1 8 3mm thick with a brass faced rosewood stock The blade is profiled to provide angles of 90 45 30 and 60 degrees A handy device and one that it s unlikely that anyone in your neighbourhood owns In brass and rosewood it s worth buying just to hang on the shop wall using the handy little hole so thoughtfully provided Adjustable Bevels The 116X bevel is another unique marking tool from Crown Tools featuring a solid brass 9 225 mm blade 1 8 3mm thick with a brass bound rosewood stock as illustrated The blade is secured with a brass wing nut to complete the impression of a solid traditionally styled instrument A longer 12 304 mm steel blade distinguishes the 118A M3 Multi Function Square NB Please note that in future M Power tools may be delivered in an alternative more sombre livery alternatively badged as Trend products following a change in distribution arrangements The quality design and performance of the products remains unchanged we re happy to report What a pity some folk think that all tools should be drab and workaday in appearance If you thought that the try square was one of those tools that always has been always will be it just is then you didn t have the vision of M Power Tools This innovative company have taken a fresh look at the traditional tool in the light of the wood craftsman s needs and have brought it into the 21st century with a bang The result is the M3 square which not only acts as a precise square but one that can be re zeroed when you have dinged it and that allows you to mark two edges of the timber at one setting regardless of the edge form but also as a bevel gauge and a marking gauge too Incredible Take a look and see what the world has been missing until now The superbly conceived M3 square is shown above in its tough low friction powder coated finish At left can be seen the unique capability of marking two edges at one setting face side and face edge marks are always aligned with this square and the ability of the M3 square to bridge across moulded corners on worktops frames and other such workpieces The 9 230 mm blade of the M3 square now supplied laser etched graduated can also be re set to zero so that unlike normal squares there is no long term loss of accuracy should the tool be dropped or suffer severe knocks whilst in use or storage Also supplied with the M3 square is the M3 Scribe based on the Tri Scribe shown elsewhere but offering the advantage of turning the square into an accuarate pencil marking gauge See illustration above right And now there is a further recent addition of a concept based around the Tri Blade whereby a blade can be used for marking

  • Measuring
    know there are other clever ways of doing this job but what s wrong with doing it the quick easy and accurate way After using one for some time I would pass on just one tip about its use the results will be more accurate if you always extend the unit beyond the end point dimension you require and then compress it to the exact end point positions Thi simply takes up any slack in the mechanism and is of course nor more or less than good practice with any mechanical device Another great gizmo from M Power Description Price Click to Buy M Power Point 2 Point setting out dividing tool 15 90 Heavy Duty Tape If you re looking for an affordable accurate measuring tape then this is the answer This tape is seriously heavy duty with its robust soft touch casing and its heavy gauge tape at this price you really can afford to chuck it around Description Price Click to Buy 8m 26ft Hi Vis Measuring Tape 2 58 Calipers Rules Micrometers Squares There are some tools that are so essential yet so economical if bought approproiately that they should be treated a consumables Without doubt steel rules are in that category The rules shown below are stainless steel single sided rules with an anti glare coating and clearly legible scales in both imperial inch and metric mm units The reverse side carries useful data such as imperial metric conversions and thread size data for ISO metric threads We are not going to claim that these are toolroom standard but they are very reasonable decent everyday rules appropriate for daily workbench use and economical enough to lose every once in a while Description Price Click to Buy Steel Rules 150mm rule single sided metric and imperial graduations stainless steel 0 49 300mm rule single sided metric and imperial graduations stainless steel 1 19 600mm rule single sided metric and imperial graduations stainless steel 2 96 900mm rule single sided metric and imperial graduations stainless steel 5 58 This excellent little 150 mm 6 digital caliper is a very real boon especially for those of us to whom Father Time is calling loudly and who now find themselves visually challenged I find reading a vernier scale very difficult now without the aid of a jeweller s lens even then the old grey stuff frequently forgets the answer I ve read before I get to write it down So what a boon this little beauty is The measured dime nsion is displayed in large clear digits to 0 1mm or 0 01 inches with an accuracy of 0 01 mm or 0 005 inches either selected at the press of a button giving instant conversion from imperial to metric units and is displayed until the auto power off kills the display after a period of inactivity Differential measurements are a doddle too as the value can be zeroed anywhere This versatile tool measures external and internal features as

  • Marking Gauges
    alignment problems Because the cutting disc has its bevel on the inside towards the stock it draws the stock against the timber edge reducing the chance of wavering lines Being a cutter like a marking knife or cutting gauge the line it leaves across the grain is perfectly clean Setting is aided by an internal O ring which maintains just enough friction on the stem to prevent slippage A nice smart piece of kit well thought out The Micro Adjust versions feature a thimble setting system which allows really precision setting yet gives a full 3 16 5 mm of fine adjustment These are available in both graduated and non graduated versions metric and imperial The cutters on all Veritas wheel gauges can be simply sharpened by laying flat on a fine diamond or oil stone and honing the flat surface The latest addition to this excellent range is the 05N70 01 dual marking gauge In this model the two rods can be adjusted independently up to 5 3 4 inches 145 mm from the face of the head The cuitters have bevels on opposite faces ensuring that the cut can always be arranged with the bevel in the waste side of the line Not only is this a great gauge for marking mortises and tenons but it can also be used to set and repeat two independent dimensions thanks to the orientation of the cutting wheels in relationship to the head Tri Scribe from M Power is a recently developed tool which enables you to convert a rule into a trammel a try square into a marking gauge and a big one at that and with the addition of the Tri Blade cutter to make either of these into a cutting tool I ve had a Tri Scribe in
