Digital Angle Finders, What are you using?
« on: March 02, 2016, 09:41:21 PM »
Not sure why I haven't bought one already, but I want one. Seems I'm always a half degree off on when I need to be spot on.

What are you pros using? I'm in the $60 price range for the ballers (Fabr) out there!

i just use a standard angle finder and on my bender i have a pointer but you have to get to know the tool as you will have to overbend 3* on most to get it right on.

I'm low tech as well, but my eye and my Starrett Angle meter always seem to be a degree off. I bought a digital on amazon.
