I have it have and use it to adjust router bit height by .001" until I get the depth I want. It works well for me. I also have a Pat Warner made router table fence that has a dial indicator where I can adjust the width of a groove by .001" at a time until I get the fit I want. So some woodworkers do work in thousands.

You are a machinist doing wood working,nothing wrong with that if you have the patients, and it is fun for you.

Herb, I'm not a machinist but I enjoy working to precision. Keeps my mind fresh and focused. When I got serious about woodworking I was "mentored" (best word I could come up with) by Pat Warner. I related to his ideas on precision woodworking and metrology. Kind of fits my make up. When I coached football (receivers & QBs) and baseball (infield), we aimed for a level of precision in how we ran our routes and fielded the ball. Kind of carried over when I taught and later when I became a principal. Now that I'm retired, it keeps me on my toes.

Pat Warner, which I have the utmost respect for him and his work, was not the norm for a woodworker, He was more of a machinist jig builder, in my opinion. I was a jig builder for Boeing for many years and he would have fit in perfectly. but the average woodworker does not need to be that exacting to do fine work. If you enjoy it, then that is what counts, and it makes a good retirement pastime. Myself I am happy just making things, not fussing with .001"

I agree with doing what makes us happy. It's always great to share ideas, even if they differ, without insulting and demeaning one another. BTW. I'm not always chasing the .001." I only do it when I feel it's necessary which is usually on the router table, with a plunge router, or using the Micro Fence to adjust the width of a tenon.

I have one I bought a couple of years ago. They work great for setting jointer knives. It makes the job real easy. I posted a thread a couple years ago but I don't think I got any takers back then either. My jointer works great after using one to set the knives. I now have a Jet jointer to setup. I only have 2 jointers now because my friend gave me the Jet jointer hardly used. He used it for only 1 project and it just set for a few years.

Ordered the Oneway Multi-Gauge yesterday. Seems to fit my purposes - today and in the future.

I use to be amazed by people who will spend big bucks on a drill press, but then buy 10-for-a-dollar Chinese drill bits. Or tools that require a certain amount of measurement precision to use then complain about the inexpensive cost of a measurement tool.

I'm no longer amazed. It seems to be the norm.

I looked up my thread on here about setting my jointer.

To me this is the easy way.
