I bought this from Rockler about a week ago, it was on sale for 10$ cheaper than the wixey, so i figured why not, if it sucks i can return it. So far I have to say this thing rocks.
-has really strong magnets in it, wont slip at all off of a highly polished blade.
-cheaper than wixey
-has hold button for odd position angles
-numbers auto flip when you turn it upside down to make it easier to read
-takes a 9v battery
-has magnets on 3 sides ( i dont know if the wixey does)
-has machined metal body, the weight will kinda surprise you, probly why the magnets are so strong.
-comes with a screw driver to take the back off to change the battery
-I think that Igaging is the manufacturer but honestly who knows
seems like a real solid piece of kit so far, the box says it has a .05 resolution and .1 accuracy. so far i believe it.
