JessEm Tool Setting Gauge
Far more accurate than a ruler and faster than stacking up setup blocks, JessEm’s Setting Gauge will quickly become one of your most frequently used router table & table saw accessories. It’s one of those hefty “lifetime” tools that you’ll love.
Interlocking teeth machined into the heavy aluminum base and height adjustment block every 1/16” guarantee that your height adjustments will be dead on and completely repeatable across the gauge’s 2.5” height range – you can’t miss!
A 1/8” thick steel plate extending from the adjustment block easily reaches across large router bits, and you can use either the plate’s top or bottom surface as a reference because the base is engraved with 2 scales – the left scale reads the height at the underside of the plate, and the right-hand scale shows the height at the top of the plate.
The gauge has a couple more tricks, too – lay the gauge on its side and put the base against the fence on your router table, table saw, or band saw to accurately set the fence’s position.
On a router table, for example, holding the steel plate’s outer surface against the router bit lets you accurately set the distance between it and the fence, or the plate’s inner surface can be used to quickly set how much of the router bit is exposed in front of the fence for cutting rabbets.
