    That's why I did it . That square does not bear up against a standard but is good for initial work. Also most height guages have a fairly short bar, on this find some scrap steel with a hole in it

    Hi Christophe
    That chain is the Xdrive of my homebuilt CNC router, seems to work well

    cheers

    Very clever of you Graham. Flip the bar in line towards the handle and it could be used as a thickness gauge too.

    I like that idea. Amazing what can be done with two bits of metal. The MacGyver gene is alive and well

    cheers
