done with a 6" caliper set on millimeters. These readings will

equate to different angle measurements. This webpage will

help you calculate the caliper readings/settings to use for

different angles.

Elevation Angle (Angle of Inclination)- An elevation angle is between 0 and 90 degrees. It is the angle between a flat reference surface (such as a table) and the angle you're measuring. The Elevation and Obtuse angles will always add up to 180 degrees.
- Obtuse Angle
- An obtuse angle is between 90 and 180 degrees. This is the space that the Anglefinder tool takes up. The Elevation and Obtuse angles will always add up to 180 degrees.
- Tilt Angle
- A tilt angle is between 0 and 90 degrees. It is the angle between vertical and the angle you're measuring. The best example of this is the Jointmaker Pro and most tablesaws - 0 degrees is a perfectly vertical blade. The Tilt and Elevation angles will always add to 90 degrees.
