    I thrown away enough cheaper multi-meters, of various types, to have bought a Fluke to start with. Now the only ones are Fluke, except for one Fieldpiece in the HVAC toolbox.

    I keep a thin aluminum angle to put against the table saw fence when cutting Formica. It just keeps it from going under the edge of the fence by riding it on top of the angle.

    I would have to do each to think about what it sounds like. I couldn't begin to tell you. It's not something I think about. Probably as much feel as sound.

    The ones I use always read the same thing every time.

    I do the same for anything from the 1/8" blade on one of the 10" saws, to the 1" blade on the 24" saw. The first cut, if you want to make a test cut, will show if it's okay. Never had a problem...

    If the keys are Ivory, I'd be interested in buying a couple, if they're close to the right size that we need. We have a 1934 Steinway M, with a couple of chipped key edges.

    No code on angles. Just rise, and run for the stairs, and heights for railings. It will save a lot of trouble to be able to replace that bottom post. I never think in terms of angles when building...

    It looks gorgeous, and better than anything I've ever used. All of mine are old ones. I've never even had one that nice in my hands.

    I would want it closer than that. I'm sure the majority are at least that far out though. Certainly useable. I have an old Unisaw, that mostly by luck, is set dead on with fancy calibration...
