  • Wixie Angle Meter

    I got the email that this little thing is on sale. We all had a discussion about these things recently. I have had mine since about 2007 or maybe early 2008. I like it & I paid the nearly $40 plus shipping when I got mine. I think I have changed the battery one time in all these years and that was maybe about a couple of years back. This sale, IMOHO, is a good price.

    Because the pic has the name of another business in it the pic might get pulled. I understand and don't mean to step on any toes or do something in an unapproving way. But, here is the pic.

      I have had one for about two years and it is great. However, I must take the battery out as the orientation sensor doesn't shut off completely even when the display is off. So the battery apparently has about a 6 month life if not removed between uses.
      This is easy to do to extend the battery life.

        I bought one a couple of years back.....very satisfied as i do a LOT of woodworking other than on the scrolsaw.....seems to be very accurate, still on the same battery....shows adjustment of tablesaw, and bandsaw blades....nice. I paid full price for it back then.

          I find the same to be true. The battery does not last all that long if left in the Wixey. I keep spare batteries on hand now. I like the Wixey also and I paid $39 for it two years ago.

            Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

            Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...
