Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike OK, but be careful
I was using it to mark ply that I was lining a floor with before putting vinyl down. Used it for round the archtrive at the door. This door was in a corner.
Look at the picture of the profile gauge now. The orange bits are the part that moves. The blue part doesn't. So if you are right up against a skirting board you can't get a full profile. Mmmm. Wonder if that made sense. I had a skirting board on my left hand side, and a door frame right up against it, with the door at right angles to the skirting. So I couldn't get the profile right into the corner.
It'll be fine if you're in the middle of a wall, but not in a corner. Also it doesn't go quite as deep as I'd hoped. It says '150'mm on it. You can't get 150mm of depth with it.
There will be plenty of times it'll be just fine, but if you're buying it for a specific job then try to imagine how you'll use it and see if it'll work. Maybe shop around for some other versions, this is a common tool

Rated 5 out of 5 by fmog does it work
yes it does what it says on the packet, but you must make sure that all the fingers are pushed home properly, ie:- good working pratice measure twice cut once.

The product works well but is somewhat limited given it's size. An increase of both dimensions say width - 2" and depth - 1" would make it more versatile. For small "obstacles" it worked well.
