A new measuring tool from 21st Century Scientific, the AngleWright Height Gauge, makes it easier to set cutting depths on tablesaw blades and router bits. A 1/2-in.-wide pointer allows you to quickly place the tool on the bit or blade. A scale mounted to the side of the tool is readable to 1/32 in. Fine adjustments are an easy matter, thanks to a microadjustment knob.

This is a precision tool, made from anodized aluminum, steel, and brass. All the parts are machined, and they slide smoothly and adjust accurately.

The AngleWright Height Gauge sells for $135. At that price, I'll live with my combination square. But if you can afford it, this is a great little tool that will get regular use in the shop. For more information, go to

I bought this years ago before AngleWright discontinued it. It has since returned to production. It is very precise, but to be honest it is very expensive for what it does. If I had to do it over again I would probably pass on buying it. If you have money to burn and need a quality made American product, by all means purchase it. It will increase your accuracy when setting your saw blades and router bits.If the cost was under $100 it would probably attract more buyers.
