I was trying to reset the zero on my angle finder. It's a Powerfist Digital Angle Finder, the same as the Skil 2100.

After turning the unit on, if I press the Miter and Hold button together and hold them, the unit goes into 'calibration' mode. (The display flashes 0.0). If you do nothing, it will always stay in this mode forever after that.

You can then reset your unit - it takes time however and patience.

With the aid of a large protractor, draw angles on a large sheet of paper (I used a couple of 11 X 17" pages) from 0 degrees all the way up to 220 degrees.

Turn on your angle finder and make sure the numbers are flashing 0.0. This will be your 0 degree reading. Hold the finder closed and press the Hold button once.

The display will now read 10 degrees. Open up the finder until it matches your 10 degree marks on your paper and press the Hold button again.

The display will now read 20 degrees. Open up the finder until it matches your 20 degree marks and press the Hold button again.

Continue setting your angles in this fashion up 'til you reach 220 degrees. The next button press will close the calibration cycle and the numbers will stop flashing.

Your unit is re-calibrated. Now, if it's off - you've only yourself to blame.

Good luck!

I checked several sources and agree with you, they don't want end users to be able to repair the tool apparently. I have a toll free number for Skil that might help it is 1-877-754-5999. I also found the breakdown and they as you know don't really show any parts. They might even replace the tool for you under warranty or repair it.

My multitester doesn't react


there are several reasons why the tester doesn't react..try to check these:
1. Check the safety fuse inside it.
2..The test lead set (the red & black wire w/ pin )
might have cut inside it,particularly in the part of
ends,near the pins/plugs.
3. The bateries might be o voltage and need to be
replaced.,or if the batery is good,just clean the
contact or teminal of the bateries.( a common
multi tester have 3 bateries, composed of 2 size
"AA" & 1- 9volts size.) these bateries are all
assigned to the "continuity"section of the tester.
(these are: X1;X10;X100 ; X 1K & X10K. )
so,if the tester is not functioning only in that
section,the first thing you have to check are the
bateries.Now.if you replaced the bateries with
new one but it is atill not working,then we go
back to my tip number 1 above.,that is to check
the test lead.
3. if you already finish checking the above method
and it still not working,then there is a problem in
the resistors of the system.

But, is your tester is digital? if it has no power: just simply check the fuse & batery..But if it has a power but not working when you use to test,you jst check the test lead or the selector switch becos the contact inside might be loosen.

How do I read a multi-purpose angle finder? Do you take the top or bottom measurement as your angle?


It depends on what you want to measout. For less than a 90° angle, use the numbers below 90°. For angles more that 90° use the numbers above 90°. A flat surface has an angle of 180°. At any given point. If you make a point somewhere in the surface, and raise an end 1°, The angle @ the pivot point is 179°.

Looking for the manual for use for a Skil biscuit joiner. Can I find one online to print off? Chris oldlincolnian@wwdb.org


Here is a link to the owner's manuals page at Skil.: Skil OM
Unfortunately, you haven't listed the model number, and skil manufactured several biscuit joiners or plate joiners over the years. If the manual you're looking for isn't available to download online, there's a phone number listed on that link or you can email Skil to acquire older manuals.
I hope this leads you to the solution to your problem. Thanks for consulting the folks at FixYa!
