3 people found this review helpfulI purchased the Angle Cube after seeing it demonstrated on a forum. Since I have a growing interest in precision sharpening (much to the dismay of my wife), and since I work in a field that provides me the opportunity to use precision measuring equipment, I decided to test the Angle Cube's ability to measure… yep, angles.
An angle block set, master level, granite surface plate, and precision 360° tilt table were used to test for angle deviation from (0 to 45)° in 5° intervals in CW/CCW directions using angle blocks and the surface plate, and from (10 to 20)° in 1° intervals in CW/CCW directions using the tilt table.
The results are:
No measurement exceeded 0.1° deviation from the reference angle.
No repeat measurement exceeded a 0.10° change.
The Angle Cube frame was square. The sensor was square to the frame. On the surface plate, with each side of the Cube resting on the plate in-turn, each 90° rotation resulted in a display change of 90° through a 360° rotation. The Cube read 0.00° when inverted.
The display flipped when the angle exceeded ±90° from 0 or 180 to give a right-side-up view, as advertised.
ZERO (BEVEL) Mode
The Zero mode worked well. No bevel exceeded 0.1° from the true bevel.
Conclusion: My Angle Cube meets the manufacturer's specification. It is likely that the majority of all Angle Cubes will meet the manufacturer's specification. The less technical but perhaps more important conclusion is that I can trust the measurement the Angle Cube makes, whether making sure a shelf is level to knowing the angle of the bevel on a knife edge to adjusting the angle of a table saw blade.
