  • 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.

            Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
            by cwmagee
            A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

            Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
            That is...

            The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

            Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

            The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
