10 seconds to a dead-square drill-press table

Magnetic digital angle gauges, that work so well for setting a tablesaw’s blade angle, make easy work of adjusting a drill-press table square to its chuck. Simply attach the gauge to the chuck and press the zero key. Then, set the gauge on the drill-press table and adjust the table until the gauge reads 90°. That’s it. Now drill holes, confident they will be exactly 90° to the face of the workpiece.
