Rockler Precision Brass Setup Bars-Master Set

Trying to set your bit height or blade height with a tape measure can be an exercise in frustration. The graduations on the first six inches of your tape are often worn out, the first 1/4'' is obscured by the hook, and the wobbling of the hook can affect your accuracy. Therein lies the beauty of our Deluxe Brass Setup Bars. With an expanded range of eleven dedicated sizes from 1/8'' to 3/4'' in 1/16'' increments, you can save yourself a lot of squinting, and also minimize math errors from needing to stack bars. Of course, the bars can be stacked if needed to achieve sizes larger than 3/4''. No hands are required—simply set the bar on the table surface and raise the bit or blade to match. The dimension of each gauge is laser-etched into the brass and screen-printed onto the included molded case. Use the bars to check dados and rabbets, set up jigs and fixtures and much more! With convenience, accuracy and a large range of sizes, you can rest easy knowing that your setups are spot-on.

  • Solid brass machined to an accuracy of +/- 0.005''
  • Easy-to-read laser etched labels in both fractions and decimals
  • Durable plastic case with molded high-density foam insert for protection

Woodworking Experience:
Finally purchased and and completely satisfied
After many projects on my table saw and router table that never produced the expected height and depth of cuts, I finally purchased the precision brass set up bar master set. Have accomplished accurate depth cuts and offset width with my dado blades. My router projects have been precise for depth of cut and off set from fence for rabbits and beading applications. Extremely satisfied with all results. I would recommend this for any wood worker.

Great, do not wait
I am frustrated that I waited so long to buy these. From the day they arrived, I have put them to use. I have used them to double check wood thickness, spacing, depth of cut, and accuracy of cut. Simply fantastic!

I first used these while enrolled at the Center for Furniture Craftmanship. Not only did I learn a lot, I also discovered tools like these that I must have. These are well made, precise and INFINITELY more helpful when settin blade or cutter height. Stop using your rule and buy a set!

I have used it twice to set the depth of my router bit and to check the cut after running the board through my router. It was perfect for my application each time.

Precision Bars for Quality measurements
A lot of guesstimations have fallen to the way side with these bars that take the guess work on questionable tape measures and failing eye sight. Precision just got better in my shop, these bars are easier to use than a tape measure or ruler on a router table, jigs, table saw and other shop tools, not only easier, but accurate.

Woodworking Experience:
Extremely useful
These are useful during planing, measuring gaps between table saw blade and fence, scoring lines from an edge, setting router bit height, verifying my cheap digital caliper, and even setting consistent panel gaps. I knew I would like these a lot but didn't realize how much. To improve on these I would like to see a 1 inch bar and would want them to be 4 inches long instead of 2 1/2. A few additional sizes could be useful as well but aren't essential. So handy.

Because even though I'd rather have the four inch competitors aluminum bars they are just plain too costly.

Zeno P on Apr 24, 2017
These bars are great time savers for measuring gaps and spaces. I have the older and smaller set with no dimensions marked on the bars and now getting this larger set with the sizes etched right on the bar!! Good job.

Steven R on Apr 23, 2017
precision and also the scribed data on each. Also the case was an attraction. From the video, it looks very easy to stack several and get the exact measurements you may be after.
