What woodworker hasn't lamented over the protractors on table saws
and miter saws? If you've been disappointed, Wixey can make your life a
lot easier with its Digital Angle Gauge, $40. It takes the guesswork
out of setting a blade to a precise angle. Using the Angle Gauge is
easy. Turn it on, set it on the table, and push the Zero button. Then,
using the magnets in the base of the Angle Gauge, stick the gauge to
the saw blade. As you angle the blade the gauge will provide a
continuous readout of where you are within one tenth of a degree. The
magnets don't need to stick to the table surface, only the blade. So
the Angle Gauge can be zeroed on cast iron, aluminum, or any other
horizontal surface. The table saw was the first application that sprang
into my mind, but the Angle Gauge also works great on miter saws,
jointers, even bandsaws. It's a great way to make sure you've got the
correct angle on lots of tools.
