i would like to know if key stock can be used as guages when setting depths. i havent made anything other than a couple of signs & was wondering if they can be used other than not being brass.
and also are h.s.s. & carbide bits used in a machine shop the same as
used for routing wood.

HI and merry christmas

Yes you can use Key stock or any other known dimension for setup. The brass guages
are not hard like the steel key stock and if by chance if a guage was to hit a carbide bit, there is less of a chance of the bit being damaged.

A half in is a half inch steel or brass.
