yes he did he told me to change the pivot points but that does not tell me what the angle is that is what I need to know. I live in Elmira Heights NY

Not that it’s terribly important, but there are lots of ways to measure an angle – a protractor being about the simplest.

But it’s really simple. If you move your pivot point closer to, or farther away from the belt, you will change the angle where the tool meets the belt. Just move it while observing the angle at the tool tip. If you are trying to match the existing angle on a tool, just move it until it does, mark the point, drill a pivot, and you are done. There is no reason you can’t have multiple pivot points for different angles, or make the platform adjustable (in and out) to accomplish the same thing with just the single divot.
