My electrician friend worked mostly in industrial/commercial so this may be why he denounced it. Only thing I can think of is a phase shift, but I'm just guessing. ___________________________________

Just read the angle at zero mark and ignore the vernier. That should give you the angle in degrees. If you want you can guess the fractional degrees, though for wood working degrees is close enough.

Good advice!!! However, pumping out the tank may not fix it. My experience is slow drains means a clog somewhere. You'll have to dig up the lids (plural) to the tank for the driver anyway, so open it
