Veritas Setup Block Metric
Setting up machines in the shop can be a frustrating and inaccurate undertaking. Tape measures and rulers are difficult to use when measuring gaps between curved bits and guide fences. Worse, machines often require two hands to adjust, leaving nothing to hold the measuring tool. The Veritas set-up blocks help solve this problem. Simply place the appropriate block or combination of blocks between the fence and bit or blade and adjust accordingly.
The metric set of nine includes three vinyl shims (two 0.5mm and one 1mm thick), 2mm, 4mm, 8mm and 16mm thick aluminum blocks (a second 16mm thick block is included to simplify 32mm spacing ) and a 25mm x 50mm x 75mm steel block. The shims and aluminum blocks are accurate to within 0.05mm and are 50mm long; the steel block is accurate to within 0.018mm. Combined, the set allows stacking from 0.5mm to 123mm in 0.5mm increments.
