End Tedious Trial And Error Test Settings. When was the last time you set a router bit or table saw depth of cut and got it perfect the first time? No one has that much luck! Using Step Gauge RTS, guesswork flies out the window.
To get the perfect setting, simply position the gauge over the bit or blade with your desired dimension at the corresponding step. Now you can make the setting adjustment with both hands free thanks to the gauges’ supports. (Hint: raise the blade or bit until you see the foot of the support rise slightly off the table, then lower until the foot just touches the surface it’s resting on.)
The Step Gauge RTS is actually two gauges, with each step in 1/16″ increments. Each gauge’s first and last steps are 1/32″ different so you can make any bit or blade setting truly accurate to 1/32″. The RTS features a range of settings from 1/32″ to 1-1/4″.
With Step Gauge DP, Drill Press Setup Is a “Hole” Lot Easier. For a precision setup just slip the “egg crate” style support into the gauge and place the gauge adjacent to the drill bit at the step representing the hole depth you desire. Now you can set the quill travel stop to match the gauge setting. The two DP gauges allow adjustments in 1/32″ increments ranging from 1/16″ to 1-9/32″.
