Lots out there to choose from.

Looking for what you have learned and what is good and what is junk.

Thanks

I have had the Wixey version for a long time.  I am happy, although I do remove the battery after each use because it *seemed* to me that it drained it just sitting around.

Thanks, those are the ones I have been looking at.

Also thanks for the heads up on the battery.

Get one with a flip up screen--much easier to read in many instances. I've had good luck with a Wixey--no battery issues either.

Tilt box, best out there
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

Wish they had the tilt screen when I got my Wixey.  I've had it a long time, maybe 13 years.  I doubt I've replaced more than four batteries.

I got Tilt Box II from Lee Valley. I concur, it is excellent.
Best,

I bought a Wixey and returned it...Accuracy was off by several degrees and was not repeatable...If you want real accuracy, get a vernier.

Happy with my Wixey and is acurate and repeatable. maybe i got lucky, don't know it's the only one I have ever owned. Do agree with the battery removal though. Can't really remember why i started doing that but probably due to battery life.
