Before you put the inclinometer back into its box, make sure to turn it off by holding the ON/OFF/REF button for a few seconds.
Blade angle: To use, simply reference the saw's table as "zero", then let the tool snap to the side of the blade and adjust the vertical bevel until you're happy.
Table saw miter fence: we could build a jig that holds the miter fence upright for setting its inclination!
It's a bit trickier to get a good reference on the drill press as you'll have to reference the vertical chuck (or drill bit) and the horizontal table is the moving part - but it pays out when you want to drill precisely!
