Re: Unglamorous.....but, almost essential.....

I have those transfer punches as well, Lance.

It's the marking tools that we cannot do without. They are the way we find precision.

I cannot do without blue tape (so many uses), this Stanley knife for striking lines and transferring dovetails (I sharpen the blade freehand on a diamond stone) ...

... and a cutting gauge (I especially like the wheel gauges for their fine lines) ... transfer lines rather than measure them ...

Lastly, a small double square ... great for checking square and as a depth gauge ...

Regards from Perth
