The Wixey Planer Digital Readout model WR510 has a new angled display for easy
viewing as well as "auto shut off." And like the WR500, it fits most portable

It mounts in minutes and is calibrated in seconds.
It displays the thickness of the wood coming out the back of the planer in
inches with fractions or millimeters.

It is easy to attach the Wixey Planer Digital Readout WR510 to your portable
planer.It comes with simple mounting brackets and detailed instructions that
allow you to mount this on many models without even drilling a single hole.
Calibration takes only seconds with its patent pending calibration system.
The WR510 Digital Readout uses a piece of freshly planed board to ensure the
readout displays the exact thickness of wood coming out the back of your planer
The large easy to read display reads in inches with fractions or millimeters.
The fractions are displayed using "Precise Fraction Technology" which gives you
4 times the accuracy of other fraction readouts.
Easy to Use
Once it is set up and calibrated, the WR510 consistently displays the thickness
of wood coming out the back of your planer. It never needs re-calibrated unless
the battery is re-placed or the blades get worn down. Advanced features let you
" zero the blade" "removed a precise amount of material" , or " measure the
thickness of any board"
I got this unit to compliment my table saw fence unit. I have a B350 15' x 6 " planer and this does not fit that style of unit without MAJOR rework of the mount. I got the way to mount it from the Wixey website. I used the one for the General planer and the installation was great, but you need to make up mounting parts based on the photos provided. I really encourage you to visit the site and check out the "will it fit my..." section as there are many good options for various units on the market. It was quite a bit of work to make up the aluminum mounts, but for me well worth the effort and extra expense.
