I received this as a present last Christmas and thought things were good with it until now! I had my tablesaw blade set for some angled cuts and just re-squared the blade with the Angle Cube. I ripped pieces to make 8 cabinet doors and when I brought them to the shaper noticed they didn’t sit squarely on the fence! A try square showed them to be off by about 5-6 degrees. I double checked the tablesaw with the angle cube but according to it was right on. Hand planed a piece square, ran it through the saw and again edge was off. After fussing around with the blade and cube, checking and re-checking, I finally used my try square and sure enough, the Angle Cube is off. On writing them they apologized and sent instructions on re-calibrating the cube which state it may take several attempts and the surface must be within .02 degree accuracy.
Since I don’t have anything like that in the shop I think it’s time to stick with an accurate try square and set the blade the way God intended us too!
