I turned the angle bar around 180 degrees quite a while back so that the angle adjust ment is continuous rather than stepped. The locking screws contact the flat... undrilled, surface of the bar. I also flattened the tips of the locking screws, but I don't think you need to do that. I admint, I use a set of pliers to add a bit of torque when I tighten the locking screws. They don't slip :)
This all is pretty neccessary when one uses an assortment of stones with varying thicknesses...and wants that 0.1 degree repeatability (on the angle cube readout anyway).
