Sweet! I can't quite make out the edge detail on that brass strip...is it beveled, like a dovetail, or does it overlap the ruler?

Dan, it is just a sheared edge on the brass strips. A slight radius to square where the shear cuts down. The steel ruler just guides on the brass.


@sreilly Steve I suppose if I turned on the router and set the gauge it could cut a half radius to make a set up for the center of the bit, but would have to cut through the brass strip on the bottom. I think a person could set the slider to1/8" or 1/4" and lock it to do the same thing. or make a separate block with a 1/8"deep or 1/4" deep half rounds to set the shank of the bit to center. On both of my tables I have the tape measures on each side of the table set to 0" for the center of the bit,so when I set the fence on 0' it is @ center and I can work forward or back from there.

Thanks for all the compliments, I was just following the plan in the magazine.

Excellent job Herb. If you only used it to directly transfer a height to your saw or router table you wouldn't even have to incorporate the ruler. You could use setup bars for setting heights for dadoes and rabbets.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That is a good point, Chuck. The ruler would be handy for a depth gauge to check mortises.

Very nicely done Herb. Looks like a handy gauge. I'm just putting it on my "todo" list.
