Vintage Stanley No 94 Mortise & Butt Marking Gauge
Vintage Stanley No. 94 Butt Gauge Mortise Gauge
At the beginning of the 20th Century the term “Pre-Hung Door” didn’t exist. Neither did hand-held routers or routing templates. Hinges were mortised into doors and door frames with keen chisels and skilled hands. Seeing how much time finish carpenters spent laying out these mortises, Stanley Tools invented the Butt Gauge, a tool with two marking gauges and a square all in one compact, apron-friendly tool.
The #94 was the second-generation of the Stanley Butt Gauge, patented more than one hundred years ago. Today few of us need to tackle hand-mortising passageway doors, but this clever tool comes in handy anytime you need to mark two different dimensions over and over again.
