VERITAS Dovetail Saddle Markers
These Veritas dovetail saddle markers are precision machined at 1:6 and 1:8 angles, the traditional angles for softwood and hardwood dovetails respectively. The long legs ensure accurate registration. Also, much like the Veritas saddle square
they are based on, they allow a continuous line to be transferred around the corner, so the straight and angled lines can be scribed at the same time, ensuring perfect alignment. The inside corner is relieved to ensure flush seating even on saw whiskers. Made from anodized aluminum, these markers are light and durable, and will never mark your work.
Length short leg 1-1/4 in. (32 mm)
Length long leg 2-1/4 in. (57 mm)
Width at edge 1-29/32 in. (49 mm)
Dovetail Saddle Marker Angle 1 : 6
Traditional angle for softwood
Dovetail Saddle Marker Angle 1 : 8
Traditional angle for hardwood
Dovetail Saddle Marker 14° (approx. 1 : 4)
The 14° marker is designed to approximate a 1:4 ratio, for those who prefer this angle when working in thinner stock, as it not only provides stronger material interlock than traditional ratio angles but produces a slightly exaggerated dovetail joint that many find attractive.
Note: Please have a look to the corresponding Veritas dovetail saw guides 1 : 6, 1 : 8, and 1 : 4!

VERITAS Dovetail Markers
For quick, accurate marking of dovetails, a dovetail marker is the best tool available.
With riding ledges on both sides, these 2 ich x 2 inch (51 x 51 mm) markers can be flipped over to mark both slopes of the dovetail. They are designed so that the entire ledge is riding on the reference face, even when marking edge dovetails. The relieved corners at the join of the body and the riding ledges ensure perfect seating even on saw whiskers. Made from anodized aluminum, these markers are light, durable, and never soil your work.
Available as a set in the traditional ratios of 1:6 for softwood and 1:8 for hardwood, color coded to indicate slope and avoid error. The 14° marker is designed to approximate a 1:4 ratio, for those who prefer this angle when working in thinner stock, as it not only provides stronger material interlock than traditional ratio angles but produces a slightly exaggerated dovetail joint that many find attractive.
