Bit Height Gauge

Received a Rockler dado depth gauge for Christmas and thought there had to be a way to use it to set up router bit height. It is excellent for setting the bit back to the same height to recreate a previous cut. Works good on tablesaw blade height also.

I actually bought the same gauge on sale at Rockler… :) Nice and simple setup! I was thinking about it, but didn’t quite like the fact that it’s spring-loaded, and I can’t fix it in certain position. For setting up the bit heights, I use a similar jig, but made from a cheapo digital caliper that will stay where I set it.
