This is a must have for any woodshop! This little device has an all steel body with Magnets on Three of the four sides making it increadibly versitile. It is extremely accurate as well.

Use it on your jointer, Table saw, Miter saw, bandsaw, sanding stations almost any tool. It not only works like a level but you can zero it out on each individual tool you use it on.

This is a must have!

Mine is fine. maybe outta luck? I dunno but its true as true can be.

If you had that problem I would have gotten a replacement before lapping it.
Is yours the tilt box “II” or just the tilt box?

I have a Wixey and am always reaching for it.

cr, would the thing being out of square matter? Maybe I’m not thinking right, but it looks like if you can “zero-it-out”, it wouldn’t matter if it was square.

edit. . . . oh…. I think I get it now. Nevermind. I’ll have to check mine.

Had a Wixey … it died just out of warranty … replaced it with a BEALL … still trouble free after about 3-4 years … haven’t even changed a battery yet.

I’ve had mine for about 18 months and love it. Money well spent. A real time saver for setting up for accurate cuts.

Slick – try placing the bottom edge against the blade. How you have it shows that the 2 sides are parallel, but not necessarily that the bottom is square. I don’t mean to cause a ruckus, just saving you some trouble if you haven’t tried that yet

That’s a good catch Dan, no wonder the thing wasn’t working properly.

Love our Beall Tilt Box II – I have a DVD of their other products too. They are a super fine company, and super friendly to deal with.
