Home made rulers
My plan for my new drill press and router tables is to have t-tracks and sliding rulers embedded into the top on both sides of the bit so that I can easily and accurately set the fence. I have set aside 1 1/2" slots for those rulers.
My original idea was to use the Home Depot yard sticks, but thay have only 1/8" granulation, so they are now out.
After looking around a while, I finally decided to give up on buying them and made my own using Sketchup and double sided tape. They are just printed out and stuck to paint stirrers (of course!) with carpet tape, and covered with clear packing tape. I need some legal paper to be able to make 12" rulers, or I can splice them together if I need to.
I think this is going to give me what I'm looking for. The thing I like the most about it is that I can change them to be exactly the way I want.
Here is what I have so far:
