It is important to get the best from your saw, especially if it has decent standard or upgraded fences. The UJK Technology Aligning Jig is a moderately priced, highly accurate jig that is simple to use. On a table saw you can measure five items:
Align the blade to the mitre slots
Align the fence to the mitre slot, either parallel or with a measured amount of run-out at the end
Check the axial run-out of the blade (the side to side wobble you see if the blade is turned slowly)
Check the axial run out of the blade flange
Check the axial run out of the blade arbor
Based on a simple mounting bar that fits any 3/4" (19mm) mitre gauge slot, the mounting bar has adjustable spring loaded balls to ensure a snug fit, plus levelling screws to accommodate differing depths of mitre slot. The dial indicator reads in increments of 0.001" with a total travel of 1". Although primarily a circular saw tool you can also use it to set the blade heights on surface planers. An invaluable tool in any workshop.

Too small for my tablesawI bought this ( overprized ) jig. It came out with a too short arm for my tablesaw. The idea is good, but You can make Your own in hardwood, as I did at last, with a cheap chinesium micrometerclock, as the mesurement is not important. It is just the movement off the needel, that is the point!

Excellent if it fitsBought this to set up my Bosch GTS 10XC, didn’t realise at the time that the bar doesn’t fit the table. Having measured the running rail and bar machined to fit, this set up jig is spot on.
