There’ve been two other height gauges posted today:
I am offering a third option which I also use to find measurements (thickness, depth of dados, diameters (e.g. of a rod), etc.) of objects in addition to setting tablesaw blade and router bit heights. The clip is used when I want to use a repeat height setting.
The digital caliper was from BusyBee Tools (http://www.busybeetools.com/products/DIGITAL-CALIPER-COMPOSITE-6IN..html) (also available from Princess Auto) for under $10. It is mounted after some simple alterations on a scrap bracket platform, using CA glue or epoxy glue.
A dirt cheap but absolute precision-proof tool.
