Digital Angle cubes and digital protractors are by far the best way to measure your angles consistently when sharpening. This IP 65 waterproof digital angle cube features an aluminum and plastic housing with a magnetic bottom and function buttons for on/off, zeroing, holding an angle reading, toggling from protracted angle to percent, and even a backlight. Not only is this angle cube waterproof, it also floats! (see videos below)
What is IP 65 Waterproof?
IP 65 waterproof is an International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard that provides more technical and tested information than the vague marketing term of waterproof.
- The first number 6 stands for Dust Tight - No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact (dust tight). A vacuum must be applied. Test duration of up to 8 hours based on air flow.
- The second number 5 stands for Water Jets - Water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.Test duration: 1 minute per square meter for at least 3 minutes. Water volume: 12.5 litres per minute. Pressure: 30 kPa at distance of 3 m.
What that translates into is an angle cube that can be used in most weather or shop conditions, inside or outside. It can also withstand many a spritz of water, light rain falls, or even an accidental dip in water or a gentle rinse of the sharpening station. And with the Jende Industries Guided Sharpener, or JIGS for Knives, being dishwasher safe and stainless steel construction, what better compliment is there than an angle cube with an IP 65 waterproof rating?
