Sandvik raker gauge.

Postby Sawman » May 22nd, 2016, 10:01 am

New purchase. A Sandvik Cross Cut Adjusting Tool No 120 to give its full title. This has a very cleaver dial that adjusts the raker gauge hight to increments of 1/10ths of a mm. So the dial shows approx 2.5/10ths of a mm.(a little over put you get the idea) Very easy to set up and very accurate. All done on a screw pitch. Now I can very quickly check any saws raker depth in seconds. Just have to convert to old money.

Interesting tool. I wish I could see a better profile shot of the dial. Kind of hard to see how the dial works, though. I guess if the dial is turned, then the bed where the file sits moves up and down?

Got it in one, the photo shows the file plate fully retracted down and the dial half way down so you can just make it out. All you do is screw up the file plate until it hits the dial. Lock down and file away. Very simple idea.
