The Wixey WR360 digital angle gauge has been featured in “Model Engineers Workshop” for an interesting application. The article consists of Howard Lewis’ use of the digital angle gauge as an aid to sharpen drills. He began by using a clamp to set it parallel to the face of the grinding wheel. The aluminium is then milled to a rectangular block, set at 59 degrees with the assistance of the WR360. Once a tip angle of 118 degrees is positioned, the vice is tilted up at 45 degrees for a 90 degree vee to be cut by the end mill. This is just one useful example of how our Wixey digital angle gauge can be used to execute a task comfortably with precision.

Model Engineers Workshop” describes how our Edge Technology Indicator holder is used to fix a DTI onto a mill.
Peter shares his smart solution for the difficulty of finding a solid fixing point for a DTI on his Alpine mill. He found a spare 3/8” chuck and 3/8” internal thread in his collection and set about fitting the z axis sender mounting, leaving approximately 30mm studding extra.
He then proceed to merely turning down a piece of 12x1.75mm studding. A 3/8” x 24 thread was cut on opposite side of the chuck and they joined together with a 12mm extension nut. This solution allowed him to clamp a range of bracket fittings in addition to this initial purpose.

In an effort to keep spirits high in this challenging time, we organised a pub style quiz for all of our staff. Using video chat network Zoom, this was a great opportunity to catch up and have some fun. There’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition to put a smile on everyone’s faces! One colleague went the extra mile to really add the pub feel by using a greenscreen background. Our testing quiz consisted of 6 rounds – General knowledge, Geography & International, Science & Nature, Film & TV, Sport and a Picture round. We had some surprisingly good answers on a question about Kim Kardashian and some not so good for the name of The Grinch’s dog. David Ingham closely guessed the length of the M1, making him the winner of the tie breaker and the first Allendale Lockdown Quiz. Organising fun events like these are a great way to stay in touch with friends and colleague under the difficult circumstances. I’m sure we will have a round 2 very soon!
