But you haven't showed the reading rotating it on its horizontal axis. I've just tested a so called "Decent" Spirit level and look what happens.I used the coffee table in this instance to demonstrate a point, not to calibrate the app.
Every time I use the app on the phone and the digital protractor I get the same result.
Well that’s the best I going to do for now, as I have a few other things I have to do.Only one pic coming up Chris, what are the readings for facing you then facing the back?
If it doesn't change im off to get an iphone LOL
Haha I know the feeling, don't bother checking it, it will drive you mad if it's out.Well that’s the best I going to do for now, as I have a few other things I have to do.
One down side is to take a screenshot for what you want is on the front of the phone. I have to press 2 buttons at once.
While trying to do 3 things at once
The analogue will be more accurate!, I'd go Wixey WR-365 if I was doing it again with digital, that's actually designed to be used as a level.@RustySpoons, and others!
OK, now that the "new toy" is going back, and you've said you are "going back" to something else ( the Stanley Tat Max "analogue"), I would still to consider getting something "digital" (& less than about £30) for the work in the next couple of months to remount the TD88 on a new post and also realign a couple of multi-feed dishes - so does anyone else have a substantial preference for "anything else"?
Revisiting this thread...
I went to my local Axminster to have a play with the ones in there. I opened a few boxes up and tested different brands. They are all out by 0.1 - 0.3 degrees. None are any good for absolute measurements only relative.
I've got a £3 compass from eBay lol, these "Digital" things do not work, there is not enough accuracy in the sensor.Your experience with these digital levels is my exact experience with a bloody digital compass, what is the point of something where you need to lay the thing on a perfectly flat surface and rotate it whilst you switch it on so it calibrates itself, £30 for this cr@p, £3 plastic compass I got back in the day works instantly, job done.
