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
