Topic tags/keywords: question digital angle gauge hf

Hey all, Does anyone have any experience with the Cen-Tech Digital Angle Gauge from HF? It’s about $15 cheaper than the Wixey. I have a HF locally, but not a Woodcraft or Rockler to get the Wixey so there would be shipping on top of the additional cost. Yes, I am frugle (my wife says cheap) but if the gauge is not comparable then there is no sense in wasting money and then having to go out and buy the Wixey anyway.

All of us probably have our good and bad experiences with HF. Just looking for someone with experience of this particular item.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Gary

A lot of them look like they came from the same factory so why don’t you buy it – try it out- and if not what you want return it.

gary,
i know this is an old ad and im sure you bought something already but this will be for others that search wixey
and find this.

i first had a wixey but didnt really like it so i later bought an i-gaging cube
and it is sweet and has a ton of features such as:
inverts display when upside down
has tough metal body
magnets on 3 sides
bigger in size
takes a 9v battery

angle cube

plus its on sale right now too.
i got mine on a super sale for $19.99 a few months ago.
i should have bought several for that price and made five bucks on them.
oh well, hindsight is 20/20

They’re $29.99 now… probably because they are made $10.00 better than they were a few months ago…
