Default Mag-DRO Miter Slot Caliper Base

I wanted to check the sizing of the pieces I milled so I bought a cheap six inch digital caliper from HF. I also wanted a way to really tune in my tools. While browsing the Newwoodworker.com I saw his review of the Mag-DRO caliper bases. Check them out Here.

The miter slot base was on Amazon for less than $10 with free shipping. With it you can do accurate, repeatable checks on the table saw alignment of blade to slot and fence to slot. You can also use it as a component in other measurement jigs. It came in on Thursday but I didn't get to check it out till last night. It works well. I'd go into more detail but I'd just be parroting the review on New Woodworker. If you have calipers, either digital or rotary, it's an inexpensive path to very accurate tool setups.
