I have had a Wixey for a long time and never had issues with calibration or repeatability. Installation was easy as well. You don’t have to worry about wires or a readout that sticks out past the fence handle. It’s also half the cost of the proscale.

The Wixey is a terrific product. I got mine on sale from Rockler for $60 bucks. Don’t know how often they go on sale there, but worth it even at retail.

I have the wixey. It’s really very nice. I had to make a steel bracket for the magnetic “puck” to attach to on my Ridged contractor saw, but the thing works very well. Sometimes I forget to turn it off and have to replace the battery. Sometimes one of my children slides the thing off the end of the rail and I have to recalibrate it. But it mostly works very well. No worries about precision. I can repeatably rip to within 5 thousandths. Much cheaper than Incra.
