Skil 2100daf angle finder
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.
