Topic tags/keywords: angle cube angle display igaging

I am posting this information here for reference purposes, since I was unable to come up with it from a Search of the LJ site.

The 9V battery ran down in my IGaging Angle Cube recently so replaced it. However, after replacing it, the display was doing some interesting things … :-) The display was upside down, and the readings were way off.
So I looked up the website and sent them an email for help. I didn’t get any reply, so I emailed them again a couple of days later. Still no reply. So I called their phone number and reached someone who said the unit needed to be recalibrated. He said they would email me a recalibration procedure later in the day.

Several days later, I decided to try to find the procedure somewhere on the internet. Fortunately, I was able to find it on one of the forums—I am so thankful that folks are willing to share their information for the rest of us to benefit from.

This recalibration procedure is found here:

I have not used the procedure yet, but it looks very straightforward. The only hiccup I see is that it calls for the use of a reference surface known to be level within +/- 0.02ยบ. Fortunately, I have a friend with a local machine shop, so I may have to ask him for permission to use his surface table.

I also have an older Wixey device. However, I like the IGaging Angle Cube better, especially since the 9V battery gives much longer life than the 2032 button cell in the Wixey. I like the IGaging product, but it is a shame that their customer support is so poor.

Hope this information is useful to fellow LJers.

How can something that fundamental to the product not be on their website?

I don’t use my Wixey often, so I remove the battery when it’s not in use.

Have your say...
