With the Angle Wright Woodworkers Height Gauge you can measure your saw’s, router’s, or shaper’s cutting height to the 32nd of an inch. Because of its recessed brass knobs this fine tool can operate in either the horizontal or vertical position. It runs a bit on the pricey side, but at today’s wood prices it might pay for itself in a few missed mistakes.
The gauge components are made out of aluminum, brass, and steel. The micro-adjustment knob changes the blade height by 1/12″ with each quarter turn, and the gauge will measure up to 3-1/4 inches in height. You can also get decimal and metric scale versions.
Angle Wright is a sister company of 21st Century Scientific, a manufacturer of custom powered wheelchairs, so they’re very familiar with quality and precision. The Woodworkers Height Gauge is available from Angle Wright at 1-800-448-3680 for about $135.
