Looks like they took the Incra gauge, https://incra.com/measuring_marking-incra_gauge.html, and added a couple embellishments.

Nicely machined aluminum and stainless steel. Question is whether the value is worth that $150 price tag. I find it interesting that Woodpeckers is an Incra dealer, selling that aforementioned Incra Gauge for $15.95 and appear to be offering the same essential tool, (with add-ons mind you).

Might have to pass on this one.

FWIW, I have two of the Incra gauges and have been using them for years. Wouldn’t want to be without em.

The prices being 10x apart means it makes no difference to Incra. Someone planning on spending $16 is not going to switch and from $150. Different target markets.

It's a pretty cool gadget and compared to the rest of the pricing they have for their one time tools, I'm surprised it didn't cost more.  It does pretty much the same thing as my digital calipers though, except for the center finder function which is nice.
