Say goodbye to tedious trial and error dado setups.
Minimizing the steps to measure a dado stack combination to just ONE - one quick, precise and easy step.
Woodworking Gap Gauge enables woodworkers to find the perfect dado stack combination before installing it in the table saw. When using the measuring device; dado setups are a “can’t miss” operation.
The genius of the Woodworking Gap Gauge is that by simply gauging either the thickness of material or inside dimension of a joint, the opposite end of the Woodworking Gap Gauge is perfectly set to the required size for the other mating half of the joint. The beauty of the Woodworking Gap Gauge is that it mimics the mounting of your dado set in the table saw. Using the Woodworking Gap Gauge is faster and easier because it’s on your bench top or in a vise. Virtually eliminates the need for trial and error test cuts.
You can gauge an existing dado for a precision fit, or pare a tenon to perfection by measuring a mortise using the fingered side of the tool. Then, use the solid edge to gauge your tenon.
Why Do You Need Both:
The Updated Woodworking Gap Gauge is ideal for longer joints such as dados and grooves. Its width is early 3", providing a longer reference surface with greater accuracy. The Standard Gap Gauge is best used for mortise & tenons. It’s 3/4" width gives accurate settings even in the smallest mortises. Both Woodworking Gap Gauge can be set in a range between 1/8" and 1-1/8".
