Are You Finding Keepsake Mementos This Holiday Season?

From the AYFKM holiday shopping department comes the Lee Valley digital marking gauge.  My style of working with wood does not lend itself to using a digital marking gauge.  However, if I've learned anything in life it is that there is more than one way to do anything.  Please post any practical uses for this device below.

Garrett Wade also has a fine unique offering with their ruler knife.  I'm sure this CSI inspired instrument will provide hours of entertainment.

Feel free to post links to unique or odd gifts below.

  1. I had to check the date when I saw the LV gage. It seems weird to me, but like you say others may find its just right. I would think it could be handy for repeatbility and not needing a bunch of gauges, maybe for offsetting from a gauged value after zeroing out. Still even for a steampunk tool it's seems odd.
