I purchased this adjuster to make very fine adjustments on my sawstop table saw. The base is magnetic and the magnets are pretty strong. I’ve modified my review since I took another look at the device.

This unit doesn’t work properly on my Sawstop because it needs to sit directly where the scale indicator sits. I looked at Rockler’s website and some people have made extensions to compensate for the interference. I’m not sure if I want to mess with it or not.

Another potential problem was when I lifted the adjuster off the table I heard cracking like it was going to break. The plastic MAY not be engineered well enough to withstand long term use.

Maybe others with different saws have had a better experience.

It’s hard to rate it, and judge it when you cannot even use it.

That sucks it didn’t work for you, but congrats on owning a sawstop! It’s a world class saw.

Rockler is a good company; I’m sure if you called them with your problem they’ll accept the adjuster back no questions asked.

I bought one of these…...almost useless. Cracked the first time I tried to get it off the saw. Only one star from me.

I agree Rockler is a good company. I bought it a long time ago and never tried using it until recently. maybe I will give them a call.

I agree it sucks
the magnet was not near strong enough
I gave it back to Rockler two years ago
I can’t beleive they still sell some of their junk stuff..
some is ok but a lot is just junk… or over priced stuff from others.

I can’t believe that they’re still selling this POS !
They’re taking away from their good reputation by selling junk like this !!

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

I’ve mine for about 4 years. I don’t use it much, but when I have it’s worked fine. I think it was $14 or something like that, not much but for the price, I’ve had good enough luck with it. I’d probably give it 3-4 stars but it fits my TS. I agree the plastic is pretty flimsy, but it’s probably not something to crank on either.
