Topic tags/keywords: wixey table saw digital reader

I’ve been lurking for a while and yesterday recommended this sight to members of our Guild if they wanted inspiration. I’m now registered and will eventually post some of my work. Meanwhile I have a question for those of you with the Wixey table saw fence reader. I just installed my Xmas present and after four batteries still cannot get a stable readout. Occassionally, I can reset to zero but once I move the fence the numbers become unstable and will not settle down. The operating manual trouble shooting section says this is because of a low battery but I have tried four batteries with the same result and they each have a charge of 3+volts.

Any suggestions or should I just send it back to Woodcraft.

I can’t help you with the dilemma but want to give you an official welcome now that you have moved beyond the lurker mode.

It may be that you may have a defective unit. I would call Woodcraft and see if they will replace it.

Mine works great. Try four new batteries and if that doesn’t work, Woodcraft is good about exchanging items

I would take it back, let them try it at their store and see what they find. You’ve tried all that the manual states to do.
