WOW , $457+ for a MasterGage. I'm sure that its very accurate and a great tool but my skill level hasn't reached that point yet. I just use a 1" dial caliper and a magnetic base that I found on sale at Harbor Freight for around $16 for both pieces. I've found it very accurate for checking the parallelism of my TS blade and also for setting the dado blade height. Another place to check for these dial indicators and magnetic bases is http://www.use-enco.com
Teach your kids about taxes..........eat 30 percent of their ice cream.
Hate to sound like an echo but I too use the HF gauge and base. Have 3 of each - and as accurate as can be.
They have a great calipher set too....digital and regular.
HF has some decent gems .... one needs to sift thru all the other questionable items but they sell a ton of these items and well recived by everyone.
Oh - add the machinist square set for 3-on sale last I heard for about $8. Many have tested and checked against Starrett and like ($160+) and they on the money.
Have a good one gang
