I'm looking for some feedback on the Wixey Digital Planer Gauge that
Woodcraft is currently selling for $44.99 until Jan. 31st.
Pros or cons? It would be used on a Delta 22-580 planer.
Thanks in advance to those who post a reply here to the group.

My Woodcraft catalog claimed readout in increments of 0.01 degrees;
but I've heard since that it only reads in 0.1 degrees. If you need
hundredths of a degree, then you'll need to wait a bit - otherwise it
looks like a good buy. I've seen it advertised elsewhere close to the
Woodcraft sale price; so I don't think you need be in a big hurry
because of the Woodcraft sale ending date.
[ I bought an MD "SmartLevel" with a magnetic base, both 24" and 48"
level bodies, and a 48" padded carrying case for about twice the price
of the Wixey device. The MD product has been in use for several years
using my original 9V battery and I've been happy with it. ]

I have installed one on my Shop Fox 15" spiral blade planer and love it!
Had to invent my own brackets, but it was a simple task and works very
well! Have had it on for about six months and only had to replace the
