What it does: Every alignment task we tested,but some alignments require a 45°angle block (such as the head of a combination square) that you supply.…
High points: Perpendicular “knife edge” proved perfectly square whether referenced from the top or bottom edge. The expand-to-fit miter-slot guide dismounts quickly for nonslotted tabletops,such as those on a mitersaw, jointer, planer, and drill press. Dial indicator raises,lowers,and easily switches from horizontal to vertical for measurements such as blade height. Low points: 45°angle block,required for setting bevel stops, doesn’t come with gauge. More points: The upscale MasterGage Pro ($460,not tested) sets bevel angles without a conversion table.
