I made this for checking the knives and adjusting the corners on my Ridgid planer from the underside. I think I’ll make another one that will allow the indicator to reach the bottom of the base to set jointer knives and such.
Just need to decide what color stain to use on it!

How well do the magnetic “switches” work?

The magnetic switches are only useful to me when I set the unit on my bandsaw table to get it out of the way. That is the only surface I have that is steel. The rest are aluminum. But the base is heavy enough to stay put. I kept the opposite end long in case I needed to add some counterbalance.
