    Wixey angle gauge

    Ordered one last week. It arrived today.

    Installed the battery, then checked my table saw with it.

    This is gonna be one handy little bugger now, especially for setting 45, 22.5 degree cuts.

    My table saw blade was off .6 of a degree from the stop.
    Checked at 90 degrees, it showed 89.4
    So it wasn't off to bad from just initially setting it with a square.

    $39.00 with free shipping right now.

    Oh. It comes with two batteries also

    Man, I have been thinking about one of those. Another must have. Is it truly really accurate? If it is you have one really accurate square.

    As Steve said, it is one handy little bugger.

    Accurate? I tried it on my Starrett combo square and it came up 90.0.

    Before you get smart, yes, my starrett is accurate.

    It's a good thing that you added that or I would have been all over you. Seems like that you know me well some how or other.

    Thanks for the info.

    I have one and find it quite accurate. Mind you it has to be square to the surface you are meassuring in relation to the opposing surface which can be a minor hassle when doing the saw blade. For the jointer fence and other fixed surfaces it is great.
