Great little tool - accurate and east to use

Mark Posted September 24, 2014
Setting joint cutting router bits is a tough job and I had been considering a $300 router lift. This tool allows me to make more accurate positions (.0005") than the $300 lift! Very simple and easy to use, plenty of area to use for measuring. Comes with a spare coin cell. It also has a data output for collecting multiple readings in a production QA environment.

I just made 5 half lap doors and did so by adjusting the blade height manually until I got it right. I then purchased this product from Rockler to aid in making the next set of 8 half lap doors. It is perfect for this project. Easy to use and extremely accurate in adjusting blade height to perfect setting first time. The magnetic base is strong enough that the unit stays put when you place the arm of the gauge over the blade and raise the blade. I also purchased a new zero clearance insert for my saw and used the gauge to adjust all four corners of the insert to be exactly .0005" below table surface. Will be great for setting router bit height, measuring exact thickness of wood, etc. Outstanding product, simple to use.

The gauge had 6 small magnets that fit into slots in the base of the gauge. They all came out, two are stuck somewhere on my saw, and the other four will not stay in the slots and will not glue secure. I am returning this item.
