How to Hold Your New ZK MK1 Marking Gauge

This is a right handed gauge with finger indents on the bottom. The idea is hold the gauge so that it is pulled against the work piece and then pulled (or pushed) to scribe a line.

  
There are three indents on the bottom.  Here, I’m using the front two with two fingers in front of the beam.

  
One finger in front, using all three indents.


    
Most fingers on the beam, one on the nose. You need to be a little careful with this grip because it is easy to twist the gauge away from the work, skewing the scribed line.
