    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

                  Farmers market "survey"
                  by Linda In Phoenix
                  Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                  I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                  For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                  The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                  Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                  Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                  So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                  I like the fact...

                  Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
