A siding gauge or preacher is a small piece of hardwood used for accurately marking siding pieces to fit between two openings and to give equal exposure.


Malco SD40 Double 4" Siding Gauge. [Followed by an illustration.] Use it as a scribe or square to mark or score precise lines on double 4-inch vinyl siding panels. Or go straight to cutting either rip or square cross cuts. A utility knife blade can be inserted in the precise 1/8-inch hole increments as easily as a pencil or scoring tool.
