How did I get along without these before?
This makes projects so much easier. Case lid is a little flimsy but the bars are great. I checked then with my digital calipers and they are spot on!

Great Setup Bar Set!
Once you start using setup bars for your router, table saw, miter saw, etc you will wonder how you got along without them.

These are precise, and pretty affordable for the quality.

Great. Non magnetic if youre unsure.
I have 2 sets because i like putting them at front and back of saw to ensure my blade isnt turning inside the housing

Very handy
Absolutely love these things. They make it so simple to set depth on the router, and I find myself using them in other ways as well. Mine checked out accurate to within .0005” on my digital calipers and that’s plenty precise for me

On sale - Everyone says they're a life-changing experience for your shop. I doubt it but hey... it's worth 20 bucks to find out I guess. They'd better be accurate or they're going back.

Do these bars have raised dimension markings? I’m teaching a blind person.
Neil C on Sep 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Very cool you’re helping a blind person! The precision bars that I received from Rockler do not have any engravings at all. They are totally smooth. It comes in a case and has a chart that refers to each bar for their dimensions. They are very good quality but have no markings whatsoever on each bar. Hope that helps.
What is the specific material that is in this product that prohibits its sale in CA?
DEAN S. on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Your question should be directed to the State of California rather than Rockler.
They are made of brass. Probably a substance known to the State of California to cause Cancer when injested by lab rats at a higher than normal rate of consumption.
