Interesting jig. I would have a non-woodworking application for this.

Sorry, I guess tonight I'm just in a questioning mood.  The precision is directly affected by whether the table saw blade tooth is precisely in its topmost rotation when the measurement occurs.  How is that accomplished in a repeatable way?
