Bob,

I was just browsing what Rockler had On Sale... I saw this... and thought of you...
http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=10351&sid=AFF17

NOTE: The regular Router Table Switch, with the Red/Green buttons appears to be discontinued... and replaced by a Saftey Power Tool Switch...
http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=17401
Looks like it could be the same thing except with a Flapper hinged over the red button.

Bummer... I was waiting for the other one to go on sale again (on line)...
... guess I'll have to change to this one!

Have Fun,
Joe

Thanks Joe

I have a ruler like the one in the 1st. link but it can't do the same as the Incra rulers
On the Incra you can use a pen.and mark right though the ruler or use a awl and the mark will be dead on....with in .001 if needed...

http://incra.biz/Products/RuleSets.html
It comes with the right pen.

I just use a standard light switch (15amp) on all my router tables, it kills the router and the vac. or light if I have them pluged into the outlet on the router table, I use it for a safe guard, the switch on the router and the power switch and I almost always pull the plug on the router on any bit changing or any time I take the router out of the cabinet.


Joe check out the links on the ruler, neat rulers

I like that T-Rule... that's a COOL tool!

I can't, for the life of me, think I'd ever see (or feel) the difference smaller than 1/64" but being reasonably close... you're getting down to the pencil point being TOO BIG for an accurate measurement! In woodworking?!

Steel / metal... different story.

Have Fun,
Joe

Hi Joe
1/64" is a big deal in wood working ,,, if you make lets say 5 marks in a 6" long board and they are off by a 64th it can add up real quick.

It's like the corner ruler, that's real neat one how many times have you marked one side just to find out your off on the other side of the corner...

Yep, as you can see I'm sold on the Incra rulers they are a bit high in price but wood now days is higher than hell also and I don't like making firewood out of walnut or rose wood ,etc.

Bob, they are great. I just got a T-Rule and will be getting one of the Bend rules next. I think they are great and about the easiest way to lay out tennons and hinges and places to drill etc. accurately. I think Incra makes great products!

And when you measure from the edge you are really measuring from the edge and not 1/64 from the edge. Bob Noles is a big fan of these as well. Hartville Tool is 20 % off measuring and marking this month
