My take on other projects I’ve seen here…the splurge on this jig was for the $4 ruler. I probably over spent. With better planning you can make a much short version. The magnets on the bottom prevent it from tipping.

Nice! Should it be a height gauge? :)

Great to have a gauge to measure the actual movement of the blade rather than the wheel that says you went so far!!

Great job! They call it a depth gauge because it measures the depth of the cut.

Maybe a width gauge since it’s sideways?

You beat me to it Rick!Depth or height depends upon what you are using it to measure; depth of cut or height of blade.

Depth. What a concept. It’s normally vertical. Please figure out how to rotate your photos… You’re smart enough.

That’s as stands is actually a height gauge,used to tell the exact height of something from the base up to the top or distance being measured if not all the way maybe say to a given height line or in this case the height setting of a saw blade .A depth gauge goes internally into something like a bowl or box being cut on a lathe and it tells you how deep you have drilled or cut so as not to go too deep I hope this helps.
