Product Information:

Set includes: five 4" long bars, measuring 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" square.

These precision machined brass set-up gauges perform a variety of functions, from setting depth of cut on a plunge router, to setting bit height or fence depth on the router table. We continue to find more and more uses for these finely crafted gauges from Whiteside. Stack them together to combine measurements from 1/8" to 1-7/16". Brass gauges will not damage tool or bit edges.

  • 12 Fixes for Router Roadblocks - For most of us, the router already holds the workshop MVP award. It’s hard to imagine that the tool you’re trusting to shape edges, cut mortises, dovetails, identical parts, etc., is capable of doing that much more. Believe it or not, it probably can…and a little faster, safer, and more cleanly than you might expect.

    I bought the gages primarily for use in setting up a dado jig; however, I have already fround a couple of other uses. I think there will be many more.

    Comments about Whiteside 5 Piece Brass Set-up Gauges, 4" :

    These set up bars are great they ensure accuracy, speed up set ups they are great to have and they are 4" long great for router set ups when using large router bits and the opening is big they won't fall thru the opening and brass will not damage your blades or bits in case of accidental contact. Great price.

    Comments about Whiteside 5 Piece Brass Set-up Gauges, 4" :

    I was suprised to find that the bars profile is square. Others that I have used were dimensioned for the bar size in only one direction. (The smaller bars were flat.) You don't have to worry about laying the bars down wrong. But, these square profile bars are a bit harder to stack and keep stacked. There are no dimensions on the bars. And, for the smaller bars, there isn't enough room to write the dimension on the bar either.

    • Table Saw Router Set Up

    Comments about Whiteside 5 Piece Brass Set-up Gauges, 4" :

    Very nice idea, a great time saver when you get used to using them instead of trying to measure with a tape. I use these pre-measured blocks for consistant & repeatable known height & depth set up's on the Table Saw, Router & for gauging Dado cut width's after shimming the blade stack

    Even though the size is obvious I would prefere that the size is marked on each gauge.
