Height Adjuster Illustration by James Provost There is often a need to adjust the height of a saw blade or router bit accurately.Using a ruler or small square is imprecise, while specialist devices are somewhat expensive.
It seemed to me that it should be possible to use a relatively inexpensive dial indicator with a suitable mounting to give a precise height indication directly as the blade or bit is raised or lowered.
The jig that I made, which is the result of several attempts, is easy to use and accurate to 0.001".The dial I used has a ¾" long by ⅜" diameter extension housing below the dial.If you use a dial of a different size you will have to change the dimensions accordingly.
