The new 1-2-3 MicroGage (precision ground to 1″ X 2″ X 3″ within .0002″) offers precise measuring accuracy in a compact package. Take the combination of a precision 1-2-3 MicroGage and a Dial Indicator. Add full travel capability over the length of the 1-2-3 Block and you get accuracy only found in the machine shop and the versatility needed in the well-equipped woodshop. We use one in our shop to check fence and table alignments on a variety of machines, including blade alignments, and to set depth-of-cut for routing operations. It’s an extremely versatile tune-up tool at a very reasonable price.
Rare earth magnets embedded in the Dial Indicator Carriage allow it to slide smoothly and securely along any edge length of the 1-2-3 Block. A Lock Screw secures the Dial Indicator Carriage in any vertical or horizontal position selected. Included is a 3/8” diameter flat tip — perfect for measuring round surfaces and blade edges.
Now you can measure and set heights within thousandths of an inch on routers, jointer in-feed and out-feed table offsets, jointer knife heights, planer in-feed rollers, table saw blade heights, to name a few applications. The 1-2-3 Block by itself can be used to square up blades, bits, machine fences, etc.
The 1-2-3 MicroGage’s small “footprint” allows it to be positioned in restricted areas (such as router bases) for precise readings. The benefits are clear when your machinery runs precisely and cuts are made without strain or deflection.
