Mostly, the Tiny Bandsaw™ cuts thin sheets, where having the blade at a slight angle off perpendicular doesn’t make much difference. I recently started to cut a thicker block and thought the blade looked a bit slanted, so I deployed the Tiny Square™ to set it properly:
Which produced this result on the blade angle gauge under the table:
The scale pointer is printed on what’s basically a sticker. The QC regime for the bandsaw apparently doesn’t ensure the pointer appears at the proper place on the sticker, nor does it verify the overall alignment.
I peeled the sticker off off, trimmed the near edge, and re-stuck it with the pointer aimed properly:
It makes me feel better, anyway …
Now, as why they put the scale pointer behind the table clamp knob, where it can’t be seen directly, that remains a mystery.
