Digital Multi Gauge
Part No: W2001300
Availability: In Stock
Hoffmann routing machines are delivered with specially designed square stops which double as set-up gauges. (X-15 models are shipped with separate gauge blocks).
The square-stops have steps for W-1, W-2, W-3 and W-4 router bits and will create a bit setting which is perfect for the majority of joining applications. Instead of using the steps in the square-stop, the new Digital Multi Gauge can be used to set precise router bit projections on the machines. The digital read-out allows precise setting of router bits which is especially helpful in cases were a little less or more draw (or clamping force) is required. For example, when joining small floater frames the draw can be reduced and on large, heavy moulding the draw can be increased to suit individual needs.
The gauge features a large, easy-to-read display which can be switched from millimeter to inches. Aside from setting router bits on Hoffmann machines, the gauge is used in woodworking shops to set sawblades on table saws, bits in router tables, to measure dado and groove depths, etc.

|This video shows how to use the Hoffmann Digital Multi Gauge to install and calibrate router bits on Hoffmann Dovetail Routing Machines. The Digital Multi Gauge can be used in place of the square-stop to precisely set the router bit projection and it is especially helpful for applications were the bit needs to be set slightly further in or out...|
