I was really excited to order a jig that could set up so many of my tools. I received it two days ago and began to check/set up my planer, jointer and table saw. I must say the concept of this tool is great. It has the potential to be a tool I would use to get within .001" on my set ups. However, where this tool fails is in craftsmanship and execution. Before I get into the specific problems with individual parts I sould mention that as soon as you open the box, everything feels cheap.

My first complaint is with the long bar with all the length adjustment holes in it. Mine was not ground flat. I checked it on multiple surfaces that are known to me to be dead flat. Rocked along its length every time. This right there makes the product useless to get the precision it is ment to get. Also it is too narrow. Once you set it up to check the feed rollers for the planer it becomes top heavy and likes to fall over. Next I set ip the jig and turned the dial indicator down to check the height of the table rollers on my planer ( same set up used the check jointer knives). I lowered the table down all the way. I could adjust the infeed side but the top of the bar hit the out feed roller so I could not get the jig into the machine far enough to reach the table roller. I literally needed 1/8" more clearance...really?? It's not like I am trying to use this on a small lunchbox type planer. This is the jet jwp-15hh, a decent sized machine with 6" of planing depth. The tool is advertised to set up a planer!!

The kit included two Allen bolts to put it together which is fine, but it also included two very cheap plastic thumb screw bolts that I think are to be used to attach the dial indicator to the bar.

Very handy indeed. It works perfectly on several pieces of equipment such as: tables saws, drill presses, jointers, planers, band saws, and more. The deluxe kit is worth the price over the regular kit since it has all the pieces you need to calibrate most machines in the woodshop.

After much research, I selected this tool for its versatility to be used on many different types of equipment. Not only can it be used for several different tools, but it can take several different types of measurements where other similar tools fall short.

To give you an idea of how versatile this tool is, you can do the following measurements with it plus more (as shown in the included CD):
Table Saw:
1. Blade to table alignment
2. Fence alignment
3. Arbor runout
4. Table wing level

Drill Press:
1. Bit runout
2. Table alignment: left-to-right and front-to-back
3. Table deflection
4. Quill travel to post alignment (can't be done on very large drill presses except radial drill presses)

I also wanted a dial for measurements instead of digital. Most low cost (meaning non-scientific) digital calibration devises don't measure to a small enough scale for truly accurate measurements. Digital seems cool and modern, but if you are going spend less than $700 on one, then dials are more accurate. The analog dial is very precise and allows you to see the tinniest of deflections that a digital scale won't show.

This item also comes with a CD which clearly explains how to set it up and use it with many types of equipment.

This item should come in a better box. However, I don't use this item much after my machines were properly set up with it.

This tool is well thought-out, well constructed, sufficiently accurate, made of good quality materials, and has a myriad of uses in the wood shop to set up machinery. The red anodized finish was well-executed and the finish of the pieces (chamfers, counterbores, etc.) was first-rate. Packaging was very well done with a box using foam cut out to closely hold the components (important for protecting the dial indicator). The multitude of tips for the dial indicator had a nice plastic container to keep them organized.

After reading the instruction sheet (of nominal usefulness) and watching the DVD (very useful!), within literally minutes, I had verified that my old Unisaw saw blade was in proper alignment tolerance and arbor runout was good, but my rip fence was 0.006" off and was easily corrected. My zero clearance insert was similarly easy to properly adjust.

Minor flaws:

[I did not find the problems that another reviewer mentioned (ex: my dial indicator worked very smoothly), though it was quite a while since he posted his review. The "two very cheap plastic thumb screw bolts" that the other reviewer thought were to be used to attach the dial indicator to the bar are not for that at all - they are for the large aluminum nut and spring assembly to check blade runout on the arbor. The plastic screws are specifically used to prevent damage to the threads of the arbor (detailed in the DVD's video).]

(1) I found that the "spring plungers" (the two spring-loaded-ball screw adjustment parts) used to fit the miter bar to the table top slot worked well, however, the fit inside their threaded holes was excessively loose, so, once set, simple vibration during handling would allow them to move.
