The Wixey WR300 angle gauge is the perfect device for setting up a table saw, jointer table, bandsaw or any device that requires specific angle juxtaposition. Beyond setting your tool at a 90 degree angle, the WR300 allows you to get +/- 0.1º and for those in need of accurate angle cuts, this can only be a good thing.
Aside from setting the tools themselves this little device takes all the guess work out of jig construction, drill press hole angles and anything requiring a precise, repeatable angle.
The unit couldn’t be easier to setup. Simply place the WR300 in the upright position on your reference surface (the one from which you will measure the desired angle) and hit the zero button. It’s just as easy to set your angle which appears automatically allowing for on the fly adjustments to your tool.
The unit comes with two batteries and will, like most digital equipment, discharge the battery even when not in use so I recommend you remove the battery (an easy process) and store it empty between uses.
The WR300 takes all the guess work and uncertainty out of repeatable angles which can now be set to within +/- 0.1 degree accuracy with no more difficult than moving the table or blade itself. I wonder why I waited so long to get one.
