    Talking about Matsui? That is a nice gauge, I have three (?) I think, and they're great.

    I would skip the sliding dovetail stop, they're problematic if you have to resurface the bench. The stop has shoulders and if you...

    I have three mortising gauges, one panel gauge and one marking gauge. I cut a lot of double tenons and typically setup two gauges for that, then a spare if I'm running multiple jobs at the same time.
