This clever set-up and measurement jig has multiple uses for DIY craftsmen, home workshops, woodworking, professional machine shops and in construction - some surprising for their subtlety. It fits on the blade of most 6, 12 and 18" combination squares.

In woodworking it sets table saw and circular saw blade heights and cutter heights for dadoes, routers and planers. Plus drill press depth settings are a cinch, as are rip fence settings and hole depths. And it only takes a small step in imagination to visualize how useful this kind of precision adjustment will be on other mechanical work. It's a very versatile jig.

Good But...
Reviewed By:   (Leavenworth, Kansas) 
The Hi-Gage Square attachment fits on my combo square nicely as advertised and slides and locks easily, but the metal strap that extends from the device to set my blade or bit height is the best. After tightening the set screw for the metal strap, the strap does not seat flush with the attachment, and if Im not particularly careful in setting my blade or rotor bit height, it could be off by as much as 1/32d to 1/16 of an inch too high. If I hold the strap in place while raising the blade or bit, I can achieve the exact height Im wanting. This makes the attachment less than optimal. As an aside, I had no trouble putting the attachment together that others had experienced. And yes, the manufacturer still does not give you any instructions. I believe the problem that others have had was trying to put the spring inside the hole that the rod goes down to lock in the groove of the combination square. You put the spring on the rod, then insert the rod into hole so the spring is on the outside of the attachment and the treads at the top of the rod then are pushed down against the spring to engage the threads inside the hole at the top of the attachment. If you look at where the spring is on your combination square, you will see how this goes together. Im still trying to figure out a way to make the metal strap seat properly.

Instructions Please!
Reviewed By:   (W. Deptford, NJ) 
Looks good for height measurements - don't have a clue about it's other features - how about a simple instruction sheet on uses? I don't want to speak to a technician - one photo or diagram is worth a thousand technicians.

Expectations
Reviewed By:   (Signal Mountain, TN) 
I rate it a 5 based on the "joys of expectation." The item is a Christmas gift and I have not yet seen it, but can only hope it to be as I imagine. Shipping costs did painfully raise the total purchase price, but optimism prevails.

Good Tool But No Instructions
Reviewed By:   (Oakland, NJ) 
Tool functions well as a height gauge but I would have appreciated some instructions - haven't figured out how to use it as a width or depth gauge. If GW or manufacturer is monitoring this feedback, I'd appreciate it if you could send me an email explaining how to use it as a depth and width gauge.
