This follows my “Wixey WR 550 remote planer readout review for my Jet 15””, but this review is for the the smaller Wixey WR 510 upon my Rigid 13” planer. Yes, I have two planers so need 2 Wixey’s! I’ve been using the WR510 for a year and loved it for it’s accuracy and ease. I almost only give it 4 stars because it does not use the popular AAA batteries it’s bigger cousin WR 550 uses but instead uses the lithium coin type of battery (not something you can easily pick up at 7-11). But eh…it’s just a battery.
It works, it’s great, loved it so much I bought the bigger cousin.

I love mine and mine does actually use 2 AAA batteries. I remember reading that the battery type went back and forth for some reason, but I’m glad it’s AAA. I also love the repeatability and accuracy. Thanks for the write-up.
