For setting knives? If so, skip the straight edge and get one of these for “about $30

Not just the knives, but the infeed and outfeed tables as well.

When I got it, the outfeed was way out of wack. Lots of snipe. I’ve corrected most of that, but I’m still not sure both tables are coplanar, and I’m not 100% sure my outfeed is at TDC of the blades. I’ve also got one of those magnetic jigs coming to help with the knife installation.
