“ The term 'precision' tends to be thrown around with abandon, but in this case, it's warranted. Imagine gene-splicing a micrometer with a plunge base and then shrinking it; that's the new Micro Plunge Base from Micro Fence. Though the operation looks complex, it's quite simple. One of the handles locks or releases the plunge mechanism. Gross depth adjustment is accomplished with the depth stop rod. The rod's end contacts a rotating turret that has detents for 1/32", 1/16", and 1/8" depth settings. Locking the depth stop rod in place allows you to fine-tune the depth setting with a micrometer dial that's accurate to .001". ”

“ MicroFence: Once again I am amazed at the quality and precision of your products. I just got around to extensively using the Micro Plunge. —- Precision, quality and repeatability… thanks for a great product. ”

“ Hi Rich, I just wanted to wish you Good Fortune on your upcoming tour and i hope that you sell lots of tools. I’m absolutely delighted with the Micro-plunge base and Micro Fence. The tool is fun to use and the high accuracy and repeatability of cuts is a godsend. Cutting and installing a 4 diameter circle of 3/64 stringing now takes me about 20 minutes as opposed to over an hour when cutting it by hand, and no hand cramps to boot. Great tools. Now then, why dont’t you make a micrometer depth stop for my drill press? (just kidding, but if you ever make one, I’ll buy it). ”
