We know what you're thinking...
What is a DigiAlign, and why is the simple art of woodworking becoming so high-tech all of a sudden?
Well, the answer's simple. Because manufacturers like iGaging are making it soooo much easier, quicker and more enjoyable. Not to mention eliminating inaccuracy and tear-out that will make you want to pull your hair out.
Let's face it - the guts of woodworking, getting your hands dirty, that's the fun part. Measuring, remeasuring and...you get the idea, tas far as we're concerned, that can be taken over by the machines.
Why a DigiAlign?
Designed for completing numerous tests in your workshop, this digital alignment tool will allow you to test your table saw alignment, fence alignment; saw, router and drill press arbor run-out; set jointer knives, saw blade run-out and much more.
The Digi Align provides accurate measurements on any steel (cast iron) machine with a standard mitre slot (19.0 x 9.5mm). The magnetic mitre bar holds the tool tight against the edge of the mitre slot, while still allowing for sliding movement up and down the mitre slot to check fence-alignment-to-mitre-slot or saw-blade-to-mitre-slot.
iGaging are pros at creating easy-to-read, 3-way digital indicators, which give you readings in metric, inch or fractional increments:
- It has a 25mm range,
- Will read to within 0.01mm/0.0005in and
- Features both an ABS-Hold function and a data output for your computer.
- The indicator has a 9.5mm hole on the back mount and
- Can be used with all alignment tools such as height gauges and magnetic base holders that use a standard dial indicator.
- Battery is included.
