Accurately and quickly capture and re-adjust your table saw blade to a bevel angle.

For better accuracy, make a sharpie mark on your blade and re-measure from the same spot later.

UNPLUG your table saw BEFORE taking a reading with the jig.

Hey, great tip! Not sure how you have no comments on it, since it’s a really good idea as are all of your videos. Maybe you should try for the wacky clown schtick stuff (sarcasm). Maybe no one has a dial indicator? Baffling. I appreciate it in any case.

-- Squeek!

It’s a good idea, but I’ve found a digital angle cube thingy gives acceptable repeat-ability.

@MiniMoose I also find it baffling. Maybe I presented it in a confusing manner. Not sure. I received a much larger response on YouTube.

@Joe I’ve never used an angle cube. I prefer the dial indicator because it can be transformed into so many different uses when attached to the right jig. From transferring angles to a height gauge.

I like it. Simple, cheap, reliable. And yes, I always, always need to reset my TS blade at the very worst moment.

By the way, when you open the garage door and show the bear then shake the door with that look on your face, now that right there is pure comedy. Not on this video but definitely worth a visit to your site to watch.
