Precisely what I was expecting
Purchased as you may expect to set up my tablesaw and jointer, as well as to have for later equipment. It’s beautifully simple, solid, and accurate - exactly what i had expected. Only small complaint is that the longer extension rod wasn’t an option

Great Tool!
May seem expensive, but having a combination of 43 years in machining, quality control, and engineering. I can tell when something is a great product. This is one of those products. They did not skimp on the material either.

After spending Hours trying to fine...
After spending Hours trying to fine tune my table saw with a square I finally spent the money and bought the UNA GUAGE it was worth it. It took only minutes to square up the blade on my table saw for a perfectly square cut

Purchased this to align my Unisaw...
Purchased this to align my Unisaw restoration project...Exceptional product...well done Betterley! Super precise measurements and a joy to use. I like how the gauge tip is very low in relation to the table saw surface and still remains perpendicular to the blade which allows you to get a more accurate measurement across a longer distance of the blade as compared to other gauges on the market that require you to tilt the gauge to obtain a similar reading. Build quality is amazing and made in the USA. This company gets it and I will gladly pay extra for a well made product made in the USA. It locks into the miter slot very tightly and there is virtually no lateral movement. I have not tried to align my other machines yet with the Uni-gauge but I am confident it will do an exceptional job as it has with my Unisaw. I would recommend this gauge system to anyone!

Awesome product from a continental shop!!!Craftsmanship...
Awesome product from a continental shop!!!Craftsmanship is great and customer service is top-notch. Not just saying this. Called with a suggestion about an additional gauge tip for measuring TS flange runout. One was crafted the next day and shipped for testing!!! Doesn't get much better than that:I looked at other dial gauges before convincing myself that $200 was worth it. There are cheaper ones out there, but I am SO GLAD I "took the risk" and bought this one. It is built in a way that is extremely versatile. Can't see myself buying another dial gauge for any other machine already in my shop or in the future. Very well thought out and lots of setup possibilities.Great product!

I wanted to align the saw blade on my miniature table saw.
John B E on Dec 9, 2017
I like the ability to use both on Table saw and shaper for vertical and horizontal measurements
William J on Dec 15, 2016
At the time there just wasnt anything else available that even came close to the versatility of this product. It cant be used with nearly every machine in the shop and is configurable enough in its setup that it can be adapted to new tools as needed. I didnt want to spend this much money but after considering how many individual gauges I was going to end up buying anyway I decided this was a better way to go.

I have a Powermatic 15" planer. Do you know if this tool can be used to align the planer blades and infeed/outfeed rollers?
John B on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I also have a powermatic 15" planer, albeit with the helical head, but yes, I bought this gauge primarily for setting up the planer, a lot going on you know. Yes, it works great!
