Height Gage No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I received this along with the Wixey angle gage for Christmas. The spec.’s are as follows:

Measuring Length:
4-1/4 in. (109mm )
Decimal = .001 in.
Fraction = 1/64 in.
Metric = .05 mm

Decimal = +/- .001 in.
Fraction = +/- 1/500 in.
Metric = +/- .025 mm

6 months life; type CR2032

- IN /MM
- Auto shut off

I have used this to set blade height and the fence width (below 4”) and was very happy with the results. The base is magnetic so it stays in place as you set your height. The readout is large and easy to see, showing both decimal and fractions. Spec shows that it also can display in metric measurements. I am very happy with this tool and would recommend this to others.

I love all of the Wixey products. I use this one all the time and it saves me so much time.

I have the angle gauge and it is terrific. Easy to believe the height gauge would be good, too.

I have been looking at these as well. I have the angle gauge and the planer height gauge and like them both. This one looks like a winner as well.

A height gauge like this would save time and give you accuracy you could not get with any other tool. Equipment like this that is price right just make this hobbie more enjoyable.
