With the Wixey WR300 Digital Angle Gauge, you can read precise angles in seconds. It has built-in super strong magnets that securely attach the gauge to a saw blade. You can quickly and easily set the bevel angle to 0.1 resolution. It works great for miter saws and table saws, plus you can set the angle of jointer fences and band saw tables.

Product Description

Its now easy to achieve perfect pre-set stops or set your saw for any angle in between. Tired of leaning over trying to "see light" between a square and your table saw blade to get exact 90 or 45 degree cuts? Need 22.5 degrees for that curio cabinet corner? Now its easy to achieve perfect pre-set stops or set your saw for any angle in between. Set the Wixey Digital Angle Gauge on your table saw top, close to the blade, and push the zero button, then attach it to your blade with the built in magnets. Simply adjust your blade until the desired angle appears on the easy-to-read digital display. Display is in 0.1 degree increments. Count on the Wixey Digital Angle Gauge to give you accurate angle settings every time.

Very accurate and easy to use.
Paul Brown
Makes setting up jointer fence a breeze as well as setting my table saw and miter chop saw for perfect angles.
Mark
If you use a good right angle square you can probably set a tool to a 90 degrees +/- 1.0 or even 0.5 degrees.

I probably would have never bought this for myself. I'm a fairly serious woodworker and have used mechanical angle gauges for years with great success. That being said, this is a great little device. It is as accurate as any of my mechanical gauges and easier to "set up". The monochromatic display is a little hard to see in bright lite, but not a deal breaker. The size is perfect for use on all your saws,including the skil saw and jig saw. I use it to check my jointer table and fence, and the table on the ocillating sander. I normally cringe when someone buys me a woodworking gift, but they hit a homerun with this one. Highly recommend.

As other reviewers pointed out, batteries do not last very long. Or perhaps it shipped with a very cheap battery; I'm not sure. All I can say is that I bought one, played with it, and put it away. The first time I actually needed it, it was dead. After reading the reviews here, I decided to try a brand new battery in it, and now it works fine.

I recommend that you remove the battery when not in use.

A couple of tips: This is not a true level -- it only measures angles relative to wherever it was when you zeroed it. This is actually a good thing, because it lets you set up your table saw blade without needing the saw table to be actually level. This gadget probably has a million and one uses.

Here's how you can use it as a very precise level if you need one: Place the device on the surface you want to level, and zero it. Rotate 180 degrees and note the reading. Adjust the surface half way -- i.e. if the device now reads 1.5 degrees, tilt the surface until it reads 0.75. Now zero the device again and repeat the process. Once the surface is level, the device will read 0 degrees either way. One more tip: now that you have a surface you know is level, you can use it to calibrate the device any time you want it to be a true level. Just make sure your reference surface never gets disturbed.

By the way, has anybody ever actually tested it for accuracy?

The Wixey angle gauge is the perfect device for setting up a table saw or similar stationary tool. If you use a good right angle square you can probably set a tool to a 90 degrees +/- 1.0 or even 0.5 degrees. With the Wixey you can get to +/- 0.1, and if you're just a bit of a nut like me that's a good thing. If you're trying to set the 45 degree stop for a table saw or set an angle for cutting crown molding or some other odd angle, the Wixey can't be beat.

Apart from setting up tools when they're new or being checked, it helps you set up jigs, drill bit angles, etc. You can even measure how accurate your right angle squares are. It's easy to zero and easy to use. One odd bit in the design is that the orientation sensor doesn't shut off completely even when the display is off. So the battery apparently has about a 6 month life. But it's easy enough to take the battery out,tape it to the gauge and reinstall it only when you're using the gauge. And Wixey gives you two batteries with the gauge - one already installed and a spare in an unopened package. (They do the same with the height gauage).

Measurements appear to be repeatable to +/- 0.1 degree accuracy. The display was easy to read in my well lit workshop, but I don't know how well it would work in sunlight. There's a competing product made by Beal that's similar.

This is a well appreciated addition to my shop. It allows making beveled cuts repeatable to a tenth of a degree.

I was going to purchase an Incra square and probably still will for setting up my 90's on tools and instead decided to go with this first. This accomplished the task just as well. They both have their place because each can do things the other can not. This is an absolute ease to use and allows setting up any bevel angle accurately.

Combine with a dead on square and this tool will allow your shop repeatable accuracy in fractional degrees.

I got mine cheaper at Rockler even with shipping.

I have compared the Wixey with 2 other brands of digital angle guages, and came away feeling the Wixey produces the best results. It seems much more sensitive to changes than the other brands. I could slowly adjust my angle with the other boxes and then eventually they would "jump" to a new measurement, where the Wixey seemed to measure even the slightest change in angle and was fluid in it's measurements. It is also the smallest and lightest of the 3 I compared, and has nice strong magnets that hold it in place. One of the others I looked at couldn't even hold it's place on my saw blade without sliding down. The others used a common 9-volt battery, where the Wixey uses a "watch" style battery. It will be interesting to see how often they need changed, and how much of a pain it will be when a spare watch battery isn't in the house. The benefits the other brands had was that both had a level feature to measure the absolute angle with the ground, in addition to the relative angle measurement. The other boxes were made of sturdier metal, but I don't foresee the Wixey having problems if you treat it as the precision instrument it is.
