Stanley No.49 Auger Bit Depth Gauge

I set it to an inch deep and drilled multiple holes in poplar, nice and clean, and the same depth, it just takes a little practice to see when it hits, because you really can't feel it hit.

My dad showed up at my house last summer and handed me one of these that he found in a misc. auction box.  I have not tried mine yet or cleaned it up but based on your findings, guess I will plan to hold on to it. Thanks for sharing.
