You can spend a lot of money for a height gauge but if does the job well putting a line on a piece of material where you want it spending more money doesn't make sense. If you want to mark a piece of stock at 2.000 or 0.686 and it does it you've bought a good and accurate tool. You can always buy more bells and whistles but if your trying to get away from wrestling with a machinist square and scribe this tool will do the job as well as anything made.
Used this product to make a machinist vise and it worked flawlessly. Love the built in scriber
I am trying my hand at knife making via the stock removal method. In this you need to mark the edge of the metal that will form your cutting edge. I have used calipers and a tool specifically made to do this but both methods did a poor job. I finally had an opportunity to use the height gauge and was thrilled with it's ability to mark well defined lines into the metal with the carbide tip. I expect that over time this will wear but I am sure that the tip is replaceable. This gauge, like many of the Grizzly items, is very well priced and you always seem to get more than you paid for.
I bought this a few months ago after reading a story in Fine Woodworking (Issue #218, by Mark Shofield). The tool has performed exactly as described. It has sped up my set-up for using my jointer and tablesaw. I heartily recommend getting one for yourself.\r\n
This height gauge works great for marking the center line on my knife blade blanks.verry accurate scribe lines can easily be made.
Good quality instrument. Makes layout much easier and more accurate. Reasonable price and quick delivery. Only regret is that I didn't get one sooner!
