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.
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.
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!
