Kreg KMA2900 Multi-Mark Multi-Purpose Marking and Measuring Tool
It seems like the new thing for tool companies is to crush as much functionality as possible in as small a package as possible. If this is the new standard for what a good tool is, Kreg has a struck gold with the Multi-Mark Measuring and marking tool.
It's a bevel gauge...no it's a try square...no wait...it's a combo square...or maybe a torpedo level...or possibly a carpenter's ruler? Actually, it's a bit of all these things and it actually looks incredibly handy. It's also only $20, which seems like a steal.
When you boil it down to the basics, the Multi-Mark is a bevel gauge with a ruler for a blade. The try square ability comes when the blade sets into a groove which positions it 90 degrees to the handle.The long edges of the body also have a 3/16" rabbet, making it perfect for positioning door and window reveals.
All of this makes the Multi-Mark a one stop casing tool. Never having actually seen one or used one, we can't be 100% sure, but from afar, this one looks like a real winner.
And like we said $20 seems like a deal for this interesting little item.
