Fence Scale

A fence scale is a measuring device, usually in the form of a graduated scale or ruler, attached to the fence of a band saw, mill drill, or other cutting tool. The fence scale allows the user to accurately position the workpiece relative to the cutting tool and make precise, repeatable cuts. Fence scales can be metric or imperial, and may also include features like magnification lenses, adjustable stops, or digital readouts to enhance measurement accuracy and ease of use.
