In the photo below, Ron is using a "story stick" for setting up a stop block on the miter key slot jig for the table saw. This could be done by measuring with a tape measure, but who needs that kind of measuring when you can use a stick. Today, I also taught the "flipping story stick" method for setting up the router table to cut hinge mortises. It is not completely fool proof, is one of those things that improve with experience and practice, but so far so good. Students have been surprising themselves with their success.
