Product Description:

The MasterGage Professional is a truly revolutionary tooling system, designed specifically for the woodworker. The MasterGage/Professional will allow you to Align-Calibrate-Tune Up-Set Up and Troubleshoot any piece of woodworking machinery you own or intend to purchase. The Pro really shines when it comes to set up and re-setup of your equipment for particular cuts. We woodworkers have surrounded ourselves with great woodworking equipment, and no way to control the equipment-until now. The MasterGage Professional has many outstanding features. The face of the Pro- has four sets of scales permanently laser etched through the black anodized plating and into the aluminum precise to within thousandths of an inch. The scales are fractional inches (to 1/32″), decimal inches (to .020″) and millimeters (to 1/2 millimeters). The angular scale read to 1/2 degree. The MasterGage/Professional can be used in any measurement format worldwide! The protractor measures both acute angles (less than 90 degrees) and obtuse angles (greater than 90 degrees). All to an accuracy of 1/4 degree (15 minutes of arc). Angles may be measured in X, Y and Z axis. Both the protractor and the height gauge feature an exciting new patented concept called “Instant Recall”. Any angle or height may be recalled with incredible accuracy – instantly. This feature is great for recalling any machine set up measurement and returning to that setting instantly. The MasterGage Professional is a heavy walled aircraft quality aluminum extrusion, precision ground on all sides to within 0.0010 inches. The body is then machined on CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) machinery to tolerances of 0.00020 inches. These extremely close tolerances insure glass smooth motion and perfect fits of all parts. Measuring 7 inches long, 3 1/2 inches high and 2 inches wide and weighing almost 2 pounds, the MasterGage/Professional is comfortable in the hand and very “user friendly”. Customize the Professional to your needs with our many Accessories. U.S. Patented

The MasterGage/Professional is packed with exciting patented features that are built to last! The body of the Professional is fabricated from rugged aircraft quality extruded aluminum. All sides are ground flat, square and parallel to each other to within 0.001 inches [as a reference, the human hair is 0.001 inch]. Once ground, the body is then machined to exacting tolerances [0.0002 inches] on computer controlled NC machinery, the surface is then plated with a protective black anodized finish that also presents a superb black non-glare surface for easy reading.

The unit is then precisely and permanently laser etched with scales that are in inches, millimeters and degrees. This allows the Professional to be used on any equipment worldwide – regardless of the measurement standards used.

The Professional has a new patented feature called Instant Recall™ that allows you to recapture any height or angle very precisely. By aligning the location hole in the Memory Link™ to the precision hole of either the Protractor or level Arm you can recall the angle or height with remarkable accuracy and speed. There is capacity for three Memory Links on both the Protractor and the level Arm height gage.

The Professional body has extruded “T” slots in both the top and bottom surfaces, allowing the owner to use special magnets. These magnet accessories are very powerful rare earth [neodymium boron] magnets that fit into the “T” slots. A valuable Accessory that insures rock solid rigidity while making critical measurements.

The Protractor is high quality aluminum, red anodized plating with a hairline cursor for easy reading of the laser-etched angles. The actual red hairline is only 0.003 from the laser angular markings, thus eliminating any parallax difficulties. The angular markings are in ½ degree increments. A ¼ degree can easily be read – now that’s accuracy! The Protractor has a stainless steel working edge called a “knife edge”. This 1/16 thick piece of stainless steel fits easily between the carbon tips on the saw blade, allowing easy angular reading against the body of the saw blade. The Protractor can measure both acute angles [less than 90 degrees] and obtuse angles [greater than 90 degrees].

The level Arm is made of ½” x ¾” x 3 3/8″ aircraft quality aluminum, hard anodized for durability [hardness equal to sapphire]. The arm is spring loaded so that it automatically levels itself for precise measuring – it never goes out of alignment! The Level Arm glides through sawdust with ease and never clogs up.

The Level Arm is also designed to accommodate a Depth Gauge Rod. The Depth Gauge Rod allows you to measure things like blind holes, mortises and dado cut depths easily and accurately.

The included precision Dial Indicator will give you machine shop accuracy [1/1000 inches] capabilities for all your machine alignment, calibration and setups.

The MasterGage/Professional Manual is very comprehensive and richly illustrated with over 75 pictures.

As a new proud owner, you will have your Professional personalized with your name on a solid brass nameplate – free of charge.

The MasterGage/Professional also features a permanently embedded red medallion metal disk “Birthplate”, laser etched with the year it was built.

The Professional can accept many specially designed Accessories. You can customize your Professional to your individual needs.

The MasterGage/Professional comes with a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee PLUS a Lifetime Guarantee Policy on materials and workmanship, including the Dial Indicator.

All parts are precision made and interchangeable, a part made last year will fit a Professional made today, next year and years to come! If a part is lost or damaged, it can be quickly replaced by our factory.
