can be set to zero at any angle so that it can read the relative angle between two surfaces.
can also be set to read absolute zero, so that it can be used as a leveling device (see
calibrations instructions on reverse side).
SAFETY
Always unplug and turn off power tools before attaching the Tilt Box. Be sure to wear safety
glasses and make certain that all guards are in place on machines. (We do not show guards in
order to make the illustrations clearer.) Don’t forget to remove the Tilt Box before turning your
machine back on.
OPERATION
1. To read absolute zero, (level), simply press the “ON” button and wait a few seconds for the unit
to stabilize. Although the unit has been calibrated at the factory, it may be necessary to
recalibrate if it does not read 00.00 on a level surface. Calibration instructions are on the
reverse side of this sheet.
If the first calibration does not achieve desired results, the unit may be recalibrated
repeatedly until the proper readings are obtained.
2. To read relative zero, turn the unit on and then push the ZERO button, which will cause “REL” to
appear in the upper left-hand corner of the readout. The unit will perform better if it is left on a few
seconds before zeroing. It may also be necessary to push the ZERO button a few times until it
settles down to zero. To return to level (or ABS ZERO) turn the unit off and then on again.
3. To read the angle difference between two surfaces, place the box upright on one surface, press
the ZERO button, and make sure it is reading REL zero. Then move the box to the second surface.
If the surfaces are ferrous, the magnets installed in the Tilt Box will hold it securely in place. It will
read the angle directly to an accuracy of + / - .1 degree and a repeatability of .1.
4. It does not matter whether either of the surfaces is truly level: the Tilt Box will accurately
register the angle between them. This makes it an ideal device for setting the angle of table saw,
chop saw, and band saw blades, jointer fences and stationary sander tables.
5. When cutting small angles for polygons, be sure to allow for differences in machines and blades.
Because of these discrepancies, the theoretically correct angle may not always be the actually
correct one. Experience will point out the amount of deviation
in your saw.
If you make a note of this difference, you will easily be able to
return to that setting the next time you cut the angle.
6. For accurate readings, you should always keep the
Tilt Box upright – not leaning toward or away from you.

The Tilt Box takes a standard 9 volt battery which can
be easily replaced after removing the back with the
included screwdriver.

If necessary the Tilt Box may be re-calibrated by following these steps. Recalabration may require several attempts to accomplish accurately. It is important to
hold the Tilt Box steady while pressing the bottons to re-celebrate.
