WOOD magazine review

Woodstock International Rotocator W1218

Review Summary

What it does: Measures distances up to 1" with dial-indicator precision, for checking cutterhead-to-table parallelism in jointers and planers. High points: Dial indicator and its stylus rotate on the face of the base to lock in at 90°angles to measure up, down, or sideways. Low points: With no miter-slot bar and no square reference edges or faces, Rotocator is limited in the tune-up tasks it can perform.
