One thing I have found in the past few years of doing these tips videos is just how much some product differs from country to country, even with countries.

I finally broke down and purchased a Digital Angle Finder or Inclinometer as some call them. Basically, they are a small box that after being "centered" they can be tipped to one side or the other to measure the degree of angle, simple ... or so I thought.

Someone gave me one of these well over 10 years ago, he told me that he had owned for a while but that it didn't seem to work correctly and that I could have it and if it didn't work, I was to throw it away, he didn't want it back.
