Good overall. 1/4, 3/8, & 1/2 should be packaged with the jig!!
The bars are nice. Mine are accurate to about +.002-.005, which is about right for box joint spacing. The bars are awkward to use directly with the Smaller Rockler Box Joint Jig with a Router. If they were shaped like a box joint with the proper spacing; better.

Excellent tool!
These setup bars have no equal when setting saw/dado blade or router bit depth of cut. It is also the perfect tool for calibrating a box joint jig. I've used mine during project layout tasks when a ruler was too big and just won't fit. They worked great at the drill press when I needed to drill holes offset from the preceding hole. If you need spacers during assembly these are the tools to have.

Easy Setup
These bars make it easy to set uo router to make cuts, the container is nice also. It would be an improvement if they would stamp the sizes on the bars.

The setup bars were suggested additions to my router table accessories by a Wood Workers Guild Of America video and it made sense to me.
