This is my take on a saw blade height gauge. The nice hard maple was left over from a recent jointer plane. The imperial/metric ruler is double side tapped in a recess. The height block rides in a dovetail track with a brass plug that gets compressed against the stainless steel ruler to lock it in place. You raise the saw blade until it touches the height block and causes the gauge to rock ever so slightly. Seems to work well and you can always flip or re-cut the height block in the future.
