    Good for you. I found mine had the spare battery for a reason. Even when off it drains the battery so i remove the battery and tape it to the device when not in use.




    Edited to say...Mine is a Wixey brand so perhaps you won't have this problem.

        Have fun with your new toy. I have the Wixey and wonder if the the battery life in yours will be better. I also do what Mike does.

          I have the I-Gaging Angle cube and its still on the original battery. I bought a digital angle finder for table saw use and had the same problems eating batteries. Also my digital calipers do the same. I guess its a game of chance when it comes to these inexpensive tools. I hope you have good luck with yours, I'm lost without mine.

            I have a Wixey and I started right away with removing the battery...just in case. In fact until this post, I forgot I had bought it, but I know right where it is..................I think..

              So you zero it on the table then lean it against the blade to get the angle?

                Nope rest it gently against a tight blade and when you have top to bottom blade contact zero it. Then place it on the table

                  The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                  I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                  IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....

                  No, but I like that guess. It’s very useful and my niece wants one.
