Wixey Digital Angle Gauge with Backlight

Attaches magnetically to your blade to provide a precise angle reading—now featuring an easy-to-read backlit screen.

For cutting bevels, miters and compound angles, it's tough to beat the ease and accuracy of the Wixey Digital Angle Gauge. Since the magnets in the gauge click right onto the saw blade, it takes a true reading of the blade's actual angle, accurate to within 0.1° resolution. The zero button calibrates the angle gauge to any reference surface so there's no need to worry if your table saw isn't leveled perfectly. Works great for miter saws and table saws, and for setting the angle of your jointer fence and band saw table.


Features:
  • Now features a green backlit screen for easy readability
  • Zero button calibrates the gauge to any reference surface
  • No more errors in parallax from reading the angle gauges on your miter saw
  • Digital gauge with large easy-to-read LCD
  • Built-in super strong magnets secure the angle gauge to any ferrous metal saw blade
  • 0.1° resolution
  • Auto shut off preserves battery life

Great product
Easier to use than a square when setting up a table saw. Especially useful when cutting something different than 90 degrees.

I can finally dial in accurate angles and be confident of the cut without having to run a test to see if I got the angle right. This was a good purchase for me!!

Digital Angle Gauge
The only accurate to set your saw blade angle. Zero it on the saw table and set the blade to 45.0 degrees, and you cut perfect miters.

I wanted a simpler way of checking angles on my bandsaw table and on the table saw for making quick angle adjustments. Using a speed square is good for checking 45 and 90, but nothing else. Having the ability to adjust the angle rapidly and be more accurate than the markings on my tools will be worth the investment in this digital guage.

My angle gage does not use a triple A battery. It uses a flat round watch type of battery. The size battery is not on the gage . I have lost the battery and can't find the size. Can you help?
albert f on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The CR2032 is the part number of the battery, you can find these at most stores that sells batteries.
Can this be used to check the angle on a miter saw?
DeWtt on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello DeWitt,
You have to zero it out first (where the board sits), then (place on the saw blade) you may use it for the bevel (tipping the blade).
If you are talking about just angling the blade then you would have to use the Wixey protractor and ruler. Zero it out on the back support and then place the other half of the protractor on the blade.
