Default New marking gauge from Bridge City

Check this out: John’s Blog You can see the new black chrome marking gauge. Also a stunning picture of the stainless steel shoulder planes.

Apparently they're working on something super secret for their commemorative tool 17...

Apparently they're going to have a prototype of the MG-4 to fondle at the WIA show in a couple of weeks. Sweet!

Well, if you must be fondling things, I'm glad you've chosen the MG-4.

I'm calling this event the Wild West Show (get it? Fred West).

I hope you also got the mortise and tenon attachment for the CS-2. I can't live without it now. It's so clever! With the new marking gauge you'll never need another tool for marking parallel to an edge - even a curved one!

Yes, I got the M&T attachment. Although I use the Domino for most M&T these days there are some some things I still use traditional M&T, particularly those the have through tenons.
