For months and months I’ve been lusting after a Wixey digital angle guage to help me set my blade angles correctly.
Then today I had a brain storm…. or maybe it was just gas, but I got to thinking about all the different apps available for I-Phone and Android phones.
So, I calibrated it to my table top, (The room isn’t exactly level), and then set it against my table saw blade to 45°. Without looking at what the guide at the adjusting knob was reading, I cut several pieces of scrap. After checking them with a protractor, an old Stanley Combination square and a plastic drafting triangle I came to the conclusion that I was indeed, cutting true 45° bevels!
Here is the link for the app for Droid:
