Rotation angle indicators [tube bending]

Does any one have experience with the Baileigh AF-360D?

http://www.baileighindustrial.com/be...gle-finder.php

Or this one from Vansant

http://www.vansantent.com/angle_find...indicators.htm

I am in the market for one. I would appreciate feedback from those with experience.

Thanks Mike

I use this, I like it because I can remove it from the tube holder clamp and use it elsewhere on my rig. Much nicer then a regular level, I use a regular level for a base to set this on on long stretches. I also like the huge dig number readout I can see at a distance.

I use the t-bar clamp on my notcher for Bend plain angles. Works perfect. Just take it off the notcher and clamp it I the tube, has a flat spot for an angle finder. Walla.

Or 200 for one with a 30$ angle finder attached to it. I have about $2 in mine, plus an angle finder I can use for other stuff.

I have the Raileigh one and its bling. But also got a deal on it with a tn-250 notcher. Works great and can easily remove angle finder for other uses.

Have one of that I got from Van Sant years ago and have got a ton of good use out of it. Solid investment. Or DIY for cheap. Whatever. Only saying it's useful.

I made this one, It's really simple. The bottom is tapped for a 1/4" bolt that has been sharpened to a point so it doesn't walk around as u tighten down


After see this thread though, It would have been better to make one that could be put on/taken off in the middle of the tube with out sliding it off the end

X3, I've got a bunch of different angle finders in my shop, Attach an exhaust clamp at 0* across the two bolts and rotate away.
