So many uses I'm finding just going around measuring things and realizing how anal you can get because it's off by half a degree. Obviously it won't always replace a long level or depending on the application but having this, traditional level as a laser level I think you're set as far as getting things nice and square every time. For woodworking tools this is a must have!
I was never satisfied with using a square because you still rely on your eye. Using this means you zero it out on the table and then stick it (magnetized) to your blade and adjust to the correct angle. No more guessing with the built-in angle indicator on the saw where the marks are thick and hard to judge.
EDIT: I, unfortunately, found out it is VERY durable also. I left it attached to the right side of my mitre saw blade (stupid, I know) and since I was viewing my cut line to the left of the blade I didn't see it still sticking there. I pulled the trigger and after hitting the blade guard, that poor gauge took off flying across the garage. I'm sure it dutifully measured all the angles it was experiencing on it's way to slamming itself into my cabinets and then falling to the concrete. I said a couple of curse words and picked it up. I zeroed it out on the cut bed and stuck it to the blade. It's fine. Lesson learned. Strong gauge.
Bottom line is that I am very happy that I found and purchased this, to get me close enough to where I need to be for the lion's share of my home remodeling projects.
Like I said, my table saw is old and wobbly, but that wasn't a big deal. I just let it find it's own low spot and zeroed the table to there. Then I put the device on the blade. They recommend setting the blade to 90deg off of the table saw, then putting it on the blade and zeroing it out again. I didn't do that. I just subtracted my 15deg bevel from 90deg. The reason is because my table saw wobbles when I'm adjusting it. By leaving it zeroed to the table, I could put the device on the blade, adjust it, then let it find it's center of balance, check that the table was still at zero(taring it if not) then returning it to the blade to make sure it was still 75deg, which is what I was shooting for.
All of that sounds complicated, but it's not. This simple device allowed me to make my desired cut with rickety equipment, which is about all I have. Anyone who's cut with such tools knows what I'm talking about. It allowed me to easily make a cut that would have been almost impossible otherwise.
This product is ideal for table saws and compound miter saws, but to be honest, I think you could even use it for a circular saw or jigsaw if you used the method above. The important thing is that during your final check, when you zero the base, you don't shift it when moving it from the base to the blade. This product is well worth the money, though.
