At first I was going to say i was mad that this thing wasn’t acurate because when i set it on my coffee table flat out and zeroed it, then flipped it over it read .4deg. I put it on the middle shelf and zeroed it, flipped it over and it read .7deg. Didn’t make any sense, the table is flat, didn’t matter which side I zeroed it on, flip it over and it was off.

I recently bought a wixey digital/fractional readout for my big old floor model planer. These are supposed to be for a desktop planer but I have seen others adapt them to fit a floor model planer. I have several other wixey products and have been quite happy with them so I decided to make one adaptable to my Grizzly 15” planer. I used a 2” wide piece of aluminum flat bar and a piece of 1 1/2” aluminum angle iron… and after a little trial and error of lining up the l...
