I've used it once. Seems to work fine.
Pro Lathe Gage 02-000
The Pro Lathe Gage by Edge Technology is used to set lathe tools on the spindle axis for optimum cutting conditions. Poorly set cutting tools will leave a "NUB" at the center of the workpiece after performing a facing cut. Our Pro Lathe gage can be used to set tools on the spindle axis and eliminate this issue. The hands free design allows you to use both hands to adjust the height of the tool holder. The recess in the body profile provides enough clearance to set boring bars. The Pro Lathe Gage features an adjustable level housing allowing you to correctly set tools even if your lathe is not perfectly leveled.

Very pleased with this. IT does what is says it will and does it well. Clever, easy to use design. Have to make sure your lathe is level.
I does exactly what it is designed to do
Edge tools are always spot on and weâ€™ll thought out.
I know it shouldn't be something that is unique but this works exactly as advertised. So refreshing. Would be a nice upgrade (are you listening Edge) if the base was magnetized for the calibration...REALLY helpful since all the surfaces on a lathe are magnetic and trying to adjust a set screw to level it and hold it in place is a challenge. Great tool.
works well repeatable
Easy to set up tool.
