Obviously for pocket joinery having the wood pieces cut square is critical to having a good joint.  This minimizes the likelihood of overtightening screws, as well giving a stronger more attractive joint.  Does anyone routinely measure the angle of their table saw blade, using something like a Wixey digital angle gauge?  Is it worth the $20-30 to get one?

I use a small square to check when I adjust something on both my table saw and mitre saw. My mitre saw was a bit off from new. I have a digital square/level but that is a bit too big and a bit painful to set at 90.

I use a digital angle gauge for my table saw, it also works great leveling my travel trailer. 

As for the saw, the built in marker never stays in place so I can't count on it. There are also times when I'm cutting odd angles like between 53-68 degrees, not many angle gauges can measure it accurately enough. I also use it to check the angle on my miter saw when doing crown molding to make sure I've got good sharp cuts.

I have the Wixey & use it to set any angle except 45 & 90. I have trusted squares for that. I played around with 22 1/2 angles on 2" wide by 12"L & made a very nice glueable cylinder.

I use the Wixey gauge anytime I adjust the angle of the blade. It's worth every penny I paid for it.

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
