Okay, now that I’m not half asleep I understand Elizabeth’s suggestion, thanks to Old Novice too, and it looks like a winner. I like Jim’s suggestion too which is a similar idea adapted for a tablesaw. Truth be told, if it’s only one or a couple I’d probably still eyeball it, you’d be within a few thousands of perpendicular if your eyeballs are trained at all. My drafting teacher (decades ago now), taught us to rely on our eyes and not our rulers for measurements 1/4” or smaller.
