To nudge my tablesaw's rip fence just a hair, I used to softly bump it with the palm of my hand—not too precise. But this magnet-mounted microadjuster moves the fence precisely with just a twist or two. Using a length of 516 "-16 threaded rod and a star knob, a half turn gives me 132 " adjustment. Rare-earth magnets epoxied into counterbores on the bottom of the base keep the pusher in place. After making adjustments, I simply stick this handy helper to the side of my saw to store it.
