We've often been told that the best shop ideas are also the easiest to build, and this simple cut off table for the band saw surely fits that description. The table was originally built to cut turnings to length, but it also serves a host of other purposes, from cutting just about anything to length, to establishing tenon shoulders or making multiples.

For cutting bevels, miters and compound angles, it's tough to beat the ease and accuracy of the Wixey Digital Angle Gauge. Since the magnets in the gauge click right onto the saw blade, it takes a true reading of the blade's actual angle, accurate to within 0.1° resolution. The zero button calibrates the angle gauge to any reference surface so there's no need to worry if your table saw isn't leveled perfectly. Works great for miter saws and table saws, and for setting the angle of your jointer fence and band saw table. Now features a green backlit screen for easy readabilityZero button calibrates the gauge to any reference surfaceNo more errors in parallax from reading the angle gauges on your miter sawDigital gauge with large easy-to-read LCDBuilt-in super strong magnets secure the angle gauge to any ferrous metal saw blade0.1° resolutionAuto shut off preserves battery lifeIncludes AAA battery
