iGaging 15 Piece Setup Block Set in Metric
Make setting up equipment a quick and easy task with this 15 piece precision machined block set. These anodized aluminum setup blocks are just what you need for precise machine setups in your shop. They beat measurements using ruler by ensuring a flat and accurate measurement. Perfect for when setting up your table saw, bandsaw, drill press, router table, router, and more. Great for when you want to setup up machines for preset timber thicknesses like ply and pine.
Coming in such uniform increments means that you can combine blocks to make up most common timber sizes. Need a 25mm measurement? Combine a 20mm block with a 5mm block.
Metric sizes. The smallest nine blocks of this set increase in 1 mm increments from 1 mm to 8 mm, with the addition of a 6.5 mm block. The next five blocks are 10, 12.5, 16, 19, and 20 mm. Each is precisely 75 mm long and 12.5 mm thick. There is also a 25 x 50 x 75 mm block.
Setup Blocks are indispensable for setting the height of tooling on many machines. And they perform with accuracy and speed just not possible when “eyeballing” measurement scales on rulers. On a plunge router, simply zero-out the bit on your bench, then slip the Setup Block between the depth stop and the depth setting rod. Use the same trick for setting the depth of hole you want to bore on your drill press. These operations are completed in seconds, as well as with router bit, or blade height settings at your router table and table saw.
Please Note: Pictures are of imperial measurement version. This set is metric.
