Battery Not Included. Uses a Duracell CopperTop DL2032 - Single Battery. Click here to purchase one.

You no longer need to align a rule or mess with set up blocks when you're trying to accurately set router bit or table saw blade height. The 1-1/2" x 4" base features a magnetic strip to help hold the gauge in position while the large digital readout lets you set your cutter height to exactly the depth you need. Fast, accurate and repeatable cutter height setting allows you to make precise cuts and repeat your set ups. The shape of the anvil lets you use the gauge to set router fence position up to 4-1/2". Displays both fractions and the decimal equivalent at the same time so you know your fraction is exactly on, not rounded up or down like other fraction read outs. Accurate to +/- .001", 1/500", or .025mm

    Comments about Wixey Digital Height Gauge with Fractions :

    Although the gauge is handy, and seems to be relatively accurate, the first time the battery needed to be changed, the small plastic clip they use to retain it broke. Can't recommend this in a pro shop, stick with steel height gauges. Probably a useful piece for a home shop where you're not constantly setting saw and bit heights.

    Comments about Wixey Digital Height Gauge with Fractions :

    I love this tool. I purchased the Wixey router table height gauge and loved it, so I wanted to try this one for the table saw. I couldn't be happier. It is super easy to use and accurate. I know working with wood there is going to be lots of expansion and contraction so you don't need to be accurate to the thousandths of an inch. But it's there if you want it For the cons: the magnet on the base could be stronger. It lifts when you raise the blade on the table saw. I also wish it came with a storage case.
