Christian Sholl,   patented beveled four stem marking gage   patented March 8, 1884 patent number 41,867…This has got to be one of the more intriguing gages I’ve ever seen. Not one, not two not even three but four separate independently adjustable stems allow you to set four separate and distinct marks at the same time. LINK
