LAS VEGAS - Calculated Industries is introducing the AccuMASTER 2-in-1 Digital Angle Gauge. With the AccuMASTER Angle Gauge craftsmen can find true level and check angles on saw blades, jointer fences, sharpening planes, drill press and band saw tables, bevels, and more.
The strong magnetized base attaches directly to any metal surface. A Stayglow display shows angle readings in degrees, percent or inch-feet/metric.
Also being shown is the AccuMASTER 9" level, which finds plumb, level and every angle in between - anywhere. It can be also set on audio alert to sound when it finds plumb and level. The bright LED display is easily readable, even if the level is upside down. It is IP67 Certified - meaning it is waterproof and dustproof giving accurate measurements in any weather, from -4° F to +140° F.
The new line of woodworking tools is in Booth #4158 at the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers Fair July 22-25 in Las Vegas. CI is best known for its Construction Master family of construction calculators. CI President and General Manager Steve Kennedy said that the company has been expanding its product offerings for the last couple of years.
"Woodworking tools and devices are similar in many ways to our core products," Kennedy said. "All of them require dependability, precision and durability, so it's not a reach for us to manufacture, sell and support the AccuMASTER tools."
Also being shown is the AirShim Inflatable Pry Bar and Leveling Tool. Though not specifically a woodworking tool, cabinetmakers will find it very useful. The AirShim is an inflatable bag that can support up to 300 pounds and spans gaps from 3/32" to 2-1/2". The user just squeezes the AirShim's hand pump until the cabinet is level.
CI will also be demonstrating and selling many other tools, including calculators for builders and woodworkers, laser measuring devices, protractors, a crown jig and levels. To see the new AccuMASTER tools go to www.accumaster.com.
