Default Measuring blocks

For Bob and Rick. Caught your show today. You were making an executive desk and I noticed you using a small metal bar or block for measuring the height of the router bit. Are these availabile for purchase or did you make your own? Looking forward to seeing the finish of the desk. Thanks.....DON

As seen on "the Router Workshop"!
A must for every shop!

Set of 5 sizes ranging from 1/8" to 1/2". Solid brass to protect router bits, complete with easy access holder indicating the bar sizes.

www.oak-park.com
look for "Brass Measuring Bars"

other on-line stores have then too......

I bought the oak park ones and use them a lot and not just for routing.
I kept on wishing I had longer ones so I bought some brass square stock in 12" lenghts. I forget the price but it was fairly cheap.
They are one handy item to have around.
