Setting the tool height on my router table was often trial and error.
Running the groove, in several steps, often led to impatience and too deep of a cut and a ruined piece.
A metal rule was never around to find.
Made this height gauge from a pice of plywood and a Digital LCD Car Tyre Tread Depth Gauge Caliper of ebay ($4,99 incl shipping)
Glued a model airplane servo arm (circle) as a touchplate with some 5 min epoxy.
This project is not rocket science, and is well known to woodworkers, but just wanted to show mine, but most of all the usage of this cheap digital read out from ebay.
I am sure some of you brainiacs out there will find more than one better usage of this DRO.
Please post pictures of your projects:)
