    Angle Measuring Gadget

    I have yet to come up with drawing and instructions on how to build it. But I can answer your question about calibration. The calibration is done at 90°. In the video it is shown that when 90% angle is established on table saw, the readings of the gadget would be same from both sides of the blade. After that you make sure zeroing the Dial indicator and 90% calibration is done! Basically the gadget is self calibrating and you don't need a reference to compare it with. As for other angles, you use the Table saw scale for that. After aligning the table saw to 90°, you align its scale 0°. Then you set it to 5, 15, 22.5 and 30° and take readings with the gadget. Then create a table, plug in the numbers, print and attache to the gadget and you are done. Good luck.
