Veritas Bar Gauge Heads Set  (Ref: 503967)

Veritas Bar Gauge Heads Set

Key Features

Greatly reduces the chances of error when transferring dimensions
Ideal for testing for squareness by checking the diagonals are equal
Three styles of tip included
Ball tips for inside measurements
Pointed tips for inside corner measurements
Mushroom-shaped tips hook over edges for outside measurements
Two sets extension rods included
Minimum span 190mm maximum 1,118mm
Made in Canada


A bar gauge greatly reduces the chances of error by enabling you to directly compare or transfer dimensions. It is very useful for example when testing a drawer for squareness by checking that the diagonals are equal. The bar gauge base unit consists of two 150mm steel rods fixed to aluminium clamp heads. The rods have threaded end holes that accept interchangeable brass tips or extension rods (included). Three styles of tip are included: ball tips for inside measurements, pointed tips for inside corner measurements and mushroom-shaped tips to hook over edges for outside measurements. The distance between the ends of the round or pointed is equal to the distance between the inside faces of the mushroom-shaped tips. This lets you convert an inside measurement to an outside measurement just by switching tips. The base unit adjusts from 183mm to 305mm. Two pairs of extension rods are included, 100mm and 305mm, allowing a maximum span of 1,118mm. For greater reach, additional 305mm extensions are available. Made in Canada.

Veritas Poly Gauge  (Ref: 610132)

Veritas Poly Gauge

This ingenious device from Veritas can be used for the quick and accurate setting of saw blades, mitre fences and planer fences to any one of five pre-determined angles. These angles are 45°, 54°, 60°, 67.5° and 75° and are those used to produce frames and other structures with either 4, 5, 6, 8 or 12 sides. The gauge can be used horizontally, typically to set a mitre fence, or vertically as shown for setting planers, table saws, bandsaws and the like; in the vertical position the central knob is removed and used as a stabilising base, leaving both hands free for adjusting the machine. Construction and accuracy are to the Veritas usual high standards and there are copious instructions for use included. The overall size of the gauge is 215 x 150mm.

The Veritas ruler stop increases the usefulness of a metal ruler by providing a solid reference point. It is ideal for setting saw fences, repeat cuts, etc. To use, slide the stop over the ruler end and tighten it at the desired position. The notched post at the tip of the brass adjustment screw allows even the thinnest rulers to be clamped securely; it will not mar the ruler edge. Repositioning is fast and easy. The stop's anodized aluminum body is contoured to fit comfortably between thumb and forefinger, with raised ridges for a better grip. Accommodates rulers from 22mm(7/8") to 32mm(1.1/8") wide and up to 1.25mm(0.05") thick, the typical dimensions of rulers in the 300mm(12") to 610mm(24") length range.

Veritas Square Fence  (Ref: 475961)

Veritas Square Fence

200mm long anodized aluminium extrusion easily attaches with brass screws
Square fence face aligns with the edge of the work, the weight of the square rests material
One side offers a 25mm high face, the opposite side has a 6mm face for very thin work
Purposeful shape acts as a versatile fence and gives your framing square a handle
Ideal for use on round edge material and sheet stock


A carpenter's square is frequently needed just because of its size. The key disadvantage of such a square (its lack of a supporting fence ledge) can now be eliminated using a Veritas square fence. The 200mm long anodized aluminum extrusion can be readily attached to either the stock or blade of your square (depending upon intended use) with the two integral brass screws. The face of the square fence aligns with the edge of the workpiece while the weight of the framing square rests on the material. One side offers a 25mm high face. Flipping it over, the opposite side has a 6mm face, letting you use it on workpieces this thin without having to slide them to the edge of your workbench. Its purposeful shape not only acts as a versatile fence, but also gives your framing square a handle, hugely increasing its utility. Ideal for use on round-edge material and sheet stock. Made in Canada.
