Very pleased with this digital readout from Wixey. Fairly easy to mount on my planer. I did have to fabricate a flat bracket to mount the reader securely. Very accurate and allows me to exactly duplicate the thickness of whatever stock I need. I would recommend this product. My second Wixey product with another on order.

This digital readout works as expected
The dro works as expected. It was easy to install. it sticks out from the side of the cabinet and I hope I don't catch it with wood all the time.

I purchased this so that I would have a digital measurement for my planer. I installed it last week using a "YouTube" video that made the installation straight forward. Very nice to have an accurate (within .005) measurement in planning down hardwood.
