I've had good luck with the iGaging digital read out. No drilling and easy installation.

If I were to need a digital scale for my saw, this would be the one I'd go with. But I can't imagine how it would be useful in my shop as the tapes I use for measurements are most likely not to be the same as the digital scale.

Woodpeckers is tough buy at their price point. I've never had a need or want for the fine adjustment either.

Ed, the only fence I have ever owned is a Unifence.  I, too, would be very interested in a picture of your flip stop.

Don't these digital devices come with both standard and metric settings? What kind of tapes do you have?

I use both, but mostly imperial. My point is that the digital scale is calibrated only to the tape or caliper that is used for the calibration.

I have half a dozen measuring tapes and not all of them are identical. Unless I remember to use the "calibration tape" in all my projects, the digital scale can be off.

I suppose I don't understand using several different "kinds" of tapes. Being old school, I ALWAYS use standard or inches. Keeps everything consistent.

Even standard tapes of the same brand from the same company may not be identical. I have different brands and there're discrepancies among them.
