Veritas Dovetail Marker 2pc Set

Product Description

For quick, accurate marking of dovetails, a dovetail marker is the best tool available.

With riding ledges on both sides, these 2″ x 2″ markers can be flipped over to mark both slopes of the dovetail. They are designed so that the entire ledge is riding on the reference face, even when marking edge dovetails. The relieved corners at the join of the body and the riding ledges ensure perfect seating even on saw whiskers. Made from anodized aluminum, these markers are light, durable, and never soil your work.

Available as a set in the traditional ratios of 1:6 for softwood and 1:8 for hardwood, color coded to indicate slope and avoid error. The 14° marker is designed to approximate a 1:4 ratio, for those who prefer this angle when working in thinner stock, as it not only provides stronger material interlock than traditional ratio angles but produces a slightly exaggerated dovetail joint that many find attractive.

    1. Hi David,

      I won’t be ordering until the “lockdown” is over. You can order straight from Veritas. Thanks.

  1. I enjoyed you showing the five way straight edge and the tolerance measurements you show. I am a 76 year old, retired electronic technician and getting into wood work as a hobby for the first time
    You have a willing student here. Looking forward to learning the know-how from you.
