CMS Fence Micro Adjustment Gauge
« on: May 09, 2017, 08:13 AM »
Photo 1:  0-10mm micro-adjustment gauge for CMS table saw and CMS router table.
Photo 2:  Aluminium 90* section goes in the slot where the module drops in and with the wood in the V-groove and tight up against the table top profile provides a very snug fit on the CMS stand. 

Can also be used to ensure the fence is precisely set parallel to the saw blade/module and can be attached on either side of the CMS, so behind the fence or in front of it as in the photo, with or without the metric dial test indicator as that is easily removed. It doesn't move the fence like a real micro-adjust - the fence still requires nudging in to position, but I don't think it would be that difficult to make something that does. I was using a Kreg Multi-Mark to measure the fence to the blade/router bit, but this thing is cheaper, far more accurate and spans a much greater distance, as well as making sure everything is parallel.
