More Accurate & Quicker

Traditionalists will roll their eyes and mumble bad words seeing a marking gauge with a battery. While not as attractive as the wood and brass version, this tool is more accurate and quicker than the old standard. It is well made and robust (unless dropped on the floor which could break the digital gauge). Made of steel it won’t warp or change with temperature, humidity, and age. The real benefit is having the linear gauge included so the distance does not have to be set using a ruler o...

Nice little Digital Depth Indicator

Nice little Digital Depth Indicator

01-15-2010 08:53 PM by GaryK | 15 comments »

Being a sucker for new tools, when I got an e-mail for this I couldn’t pass it up for the price. You want to check the depth of a dado or a rabbet? This little thing will do the job. Make a little “U” shaped block with a hole thought it and then use it to straddle your saw blade or router bit and use it to set your depth of cut. One real nice thing about it is the tab on the back. It’s exactly like the one your find on the back of dial indicators so you can mount...

Solid on the outside, issues with accuracy and precision

Solid on the outside, issues with accuracy and precision

04-14-2015 03:50 AM by Rick M. | 14 comments »

From the outside in … The packaging was attractive and consistent with other products sold by iGaging (makes no difference but shows the company takes some pride in their products). Inside the retail box was a sturdy white cardboard box that contained the inclinometer, a nice storage pouch, the instructions, a 9V battery, and a tiny screwdriver. I expected the AccuRemote to be made of plastic but it’s actually a cast metal, possibly zinc, quite sturdy and heavier than expected. Th...

Long story short. This is my second iGaging angle block. The first had a defective LCD on top of displaying constant error even with a fresh battery.This one the LCD is ok but even at a sale price of 20 it’s waste of money since you may have to spend at least half of that in gas returning and exchanging.Measured against all my engineering squares and then some and two other Wixey’s this thing is so off that’s not even funny. The problem is also inconsistency. It’s not always off by sam...

Great Value

Great Value

I picked up this digital caliper for around $30 at a local Rockler. So far I couldn’t be happier. I compared it to a $100+ Mitutoyo at work and they were within a half a thousandth at full scale (5-6 inches). It also has a larger battery, so I’m hoping that it will last longer than the smaller watch battery types. Whats in the box: 6” digital caliper, case, 2 batteries (one installed, one spare). http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=24524

Snap-Check delivers accuracy and ease of use

Snap-Check delivers accuracy and ease of use

11-23-2015 08:09 PM by pintodeluxe | 16 comments »

This type of tool has been available for a long time now. Usually they are cast iron and nearly $200. They are available from chipsfly.com for $20, which includes 3 batteries. I think 3 batteries might be worth the asking price. This is an accurate tool. Once zeroed, it reads zero each time the plunger returns to the reference surface. Great for setting jointer knives. Magnets in the base attach the snap-check to any cast iron tool surface for hands-free measurements. I don’...

Install of iGaging DRO for 20" Grizzly planer

Install of iGaging DRO for 20" Grizzly planer

01-25-2016 01:31 PM by zatoechi | 3 comments »

I just wanted to briefly share a different approach to mounting a DRO on a planer that does not require complicated fabrication. This is not meant to be a comprehensive product review but instead piggyback on a previous (and very good) review – http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/2573 There are two main differences in this approach. The first is using an aluminum extrusion as the main means of mounting the DRO to the planer. The extrusion used is 1” x 1.5” cross-section with...

Accurate and Dependable

Accurate and Dependable

I have a large Bosch digital finder and liked it so much I thought I’d try this smaller version for projects that did not require the various capabilities of the larger unit. After doing so, I decided I need a few of them around for the shop and the work van. These work well for setting and checking angles when doing blade set ups on miter saws, table saws and band saws. They give a good read-out for inner and outer angles, such as when building picture frames. They are easy to ch...
