Microjig's FitFinder 1/2 Gauge wins Good Design award

February 23, 2024

Microjig, a manufacture of table saw accessories and safety, was recognized on the worldwide stage for its innovative design that helps woodworkers simplify a task regularly faced in the shop. Microjig’s FitFinder ½ Gauge was named a 2023 Good Design Award winner.  

"I really have to commend my father, Henry Wang, for his 3rd Good Design Award with the FitFinder ½ Gauge," Bruce Wang, CEO of Microjig said in a statement. "He's a true innovator and original pushing the craft forward. Thank you, Good Designs, for this recognition."

The Good Design Awards pointed out the fact that the product increases productivity by reducing the need for repeated measurements and mathematical calculations, cutting down the process time to just seconds. The awards added that the Fitfinder is also cost effective. Because it takes the guesswork out of measuring, woodworkers can scrap less material due to incorrect measurements and cuts. It can also save money and space in the shop because makers do not have to purchase and store a wide variety of measuring tools that are less accurate.  

Presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, the Good Design Awards are now in their 73rd year.

For the 2023 awards, the Museum received a record number of submissions from the world’s leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic design firms. The jury selected more than 1,100 designs and graphics from more than 55 countries.
