A Vintage Sheffield made Carpenters Mortice Guage or scribe. This tool would have typically been used to mark on the wood where holes were to be cut. The body is made from Beech wood , the locking screw and thread is in good condition. This one has a lovely patina from age and use. I cannot place the maker but can see a stamped mark of two flags and the words "Sheffield made". This tool can be used daily if required and would make a good addition to a vintage tool box or collection.
