This selection of Rosewood tools represents the very best quality produced by Joseph Marples. They are based on designs of the tools last made over 70 years ago, which carried his ‘TRIAL 1’ brand, or Corporate Mark.
The Screwslide mortice and Marking gauge has a full 1/8th inch thick brass face. The stock is locked on to the stem by brass knurled thumbscrew and protective pressure pad. The locking screw is set within a traditional brass protective shield. A screw slide gives fine and precise adjustment of the mortise pins and on the back of the stem is a single marking gauge pin.
