How difficult would it be to calibrate something like this? Wouldn’t how you set the bit in the router affect the ‘zero’ or starting point of the height adjustment… Sounds like a good idea, I’d sure like to see one before I bought one.

I would imagine you set the bit to zero and press a button—same as a digital caliper

With the way I’m always checking and rechecking the hight against my set up bars or the piece I want to fit, that gauge wouldn’t do me a lot of good.
Love their angle box, though.
