Most of the tool-setting gauges on the market today suffer from at least one of two main weaknesses. One end or the other will rest totally on the insert plate, which is usually not the same height as the main table, or they are so thin that it is difficult to ensure that teeth are being gauged at the top of the arc.
This gauge is made from die-cast zinc aluminum alloy and is 3/4" thick by 9" long. With 1/4" graduations on one end and 1/8" on the other, any height or width from 1/8" to 2" can be set in 1/8" increments. It is most useful on a table saw for setting blade height or rip fence placement, but it is also very handy for radial arm saws, bandsaws, and routers. It makes router depth setting very easy.
The easy-to-read markings are vertical on one side and horizontal on the other so that they can be read from any position.
Accurate to 0.005" or better.
