Actually my powermatic and the grizzly/woodbridge have a saddle that sets atop the head to allow for the setting of the knives. I modified the cross bars to allow the starret to be mounted on the revised crossbar providing consistent results over the years.

I did not think of the bases you illustrated here to set the feed rollers, pressure rollers, outfeed tables etc. Thats just excellent. Are all of your bases non magnetic? Do you do the same thing for the jointer knives, make a special saddle? Do you clamp your dial indicator to the bases or how do you mount the dial indicator to the bases?

Sorry about all the questions, but thanks for your help.
