One is a clone - the other is made by Crown from Shefield UK.
Which would you buy?

Just like the Identical Knock-off Clone of the Makita RT0700CX

Compare these two:-
Identical Clone (of Makita RT0700CX) with 3 bases cost ONLY AUD$129
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/710W-Han...oAAOSwZB9aBwlT

Genuine Makita RT0700CX with 3 bases cost AUD$420
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Makita-7...wAAOSw1~JZTvey
Which would you buy?

Best Regards

Quite a difference but hard to compare without having them in hand. There are plans out there to make your own marking gauge which might be a better option than either offering. I have one that has been around a while and I know I'm too cheap to have paid over $100 for it. Handy tool when you need one but I usually manage to get by without them.

"Which would you buy?" Well, I do have the genuine one BUT, even out of curiosity I would have bought the copy, it really does look like the real thing.

The $20 one looks just fine. I have an old Stanley that’s quite basic but I only paid $1 for it. A few years ago I hinted very strongly and got this Lee Valley one for Christmas. Veritas® Wheel Marking Gauges - Lee Valley Tools It makes a cleaner line than the pins do.

I have both and they are both very good. The knock off is sold as a generic under various brand names, Performax, MLCS "Rocky", and more.

As previously mentioned, without having it in hand...
But I agree with Charles' assessment in principle.

Looks like the logo costs $100, judging by the pictures. The motorized clones could have many invisible differences though. The question is, do the differences justify the price.

Mine is definitely a clone. Don't recall exactly what I paid, but it was pretty cheap. Still, it has the marking wheel and brass shoe and mm and 1/8th markings. Does the job for me. Got it at Rockler, but it doesn't have a brand name.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Went to Cdn. Tire to buy a couple of Sylvania 1156L tail lights...$7and change for a 2 pak.
Decided I didn't want to encourage them; went to a local car parts store and bought 2 for a buck apiece (gave them a 'toonie' and no sales tax.
Do I care if they're Sylvania brand (or not)?
