Default A luddite stumbles onto a gem

My dog has more technological savvy than I do but, occasionally something amazing (to me) falls in my lap.
I use a Shopsmith. It has a tilting aluminium saw table. The blade does not tilt. Occasionally, I need to make a bevel cut or an angled cross cut. My Wixey requires that it be zeroed out on the blade and then transferred to the table to find the correct angle. Since the table is aluminum, the cube won't stay put. It's a real unhandy operation. Plus, my tired old eyes are finding it hard to see the read out. So, I figgered there had to be a better device out there. Googled incinometer and the app in the link below popped up or, fell in my lap as it were. And it's a freebie, too.
In less than 5 minutes, I had the table tilted at the precise angle I needed. Of course, it'll work on any tool...even on wood. Here's the link. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ode.clinometer

Now that looks practical and easy to use. Cost is easy on the wallet as well. Seems there are better uses for the devices other than texting while driving down the road..........
