Quick Poll

Sorry about being late with this today, folks. Had a big shin dig at the house last night.  It started with the Kentucky Derby and ran until the wee hours…

Anyhoo. Sometimes, when you are using power tools in the shop, you simply need to cut a board in half. Setting the height for your table saw blade is a piece of cake – just set it higher than the board’s thickness, and you are off to the races.

But, there are also times when the height of the blade or a router bit is critical.  You simply have to hit a measurement to make the joinery come out right.  When you need to do this, what tool do you use to set the bit or blade height correctly?

  1. No gauge lines, Tom? I always work to gauge lines or layout lines. If accuracy in important, I don”t know of anything better than gauge lines.

  2. I have to say, I use pretty much all the options listed, but combo square rules.
    I have three or four and leave ones set up that I will be using again for the same measurement.
    Sounded like a good Derby party.
    Thanks Tom.
