Given this, and the emphasised importance of getting these angles right, is
there no simple measurment that can be provided so that us new (or old!)
builders can check whether our jigs have warped or require adjustment?

Agree, but after an ocean trip in a shipping container and delay before
they arrive down here, I want to be confident that our jigs are accurate. I
am more than happy to substitute the aluminium for the wood but request
confirmation of jig angles.

Thanks for your interest in this area.
