I originally undertook a review of this item http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Tikka/blog/1195 in 2007. here are some of the comments I made then.
WIXEY DIGITAL SAW READOUT The first thing I noted was the excellent packaging inside the carton. Things were held in place to stop them moving about during shipment. (Other suppliers of equipment take note) You should read the blog if you want all the associated pictures.
In summary – with my failing eyesight a great asset for accurate measurements. I know that, even when I change the blade on my saw, from 2.3mm kerf up to 20mm kerf, I will always have an accurate reading to the left or right of the blade. Good value for your bucks.
So it has been 9 months since that blog – The only minor down side is that some times when you move the gauge to far–right turn off the power and then move it back to the left with out it being powered up – it can loose its calibration. To recalibrate takes less than 10 seconds.
The Wixey Digital saw readout has been worth every penny spent. It has saved me countless hours and mistakes, especially as I work with both mm and Inches on the same projects sometimes.
