Thread: Early anniversary present

    Early anniversary present

    Well loml snuck another one in under the radar. She took advantage of the special rockler was having and must have remembered me commenting one time about this saw fence digital readout. They have a memory like an elephant. Best part is she also got the digital angle gauge that was also included with the saw fence attachment!

    Nice! Dont have the digital readout on the saw, but those angle finders sure come in handy.

    Here it is set on 12" and checked it with the tape and it measured the same. It's very repeatable.

    Then I used the angle guage to check my saw blade and low and behold it was at 90 without ever using a sguare to set it. Must of lucked out on that one. Even tilted the blade and it went right back to 90 when it hit the stop!
