These easy-to-read dial calipers are made from hardened stainless steel and have ground and lapped measuring faces. Maximum measuring length is 150mm and the dial is calibrated in divisions of 0.02mm. Adjustment is made with a knurled wheel with an override to prevent the mechanism from being strained. The dial can be zeroed and a locking screw is provided for pre-setting or transference of internal, external and depth measurements. Supplied in a strong foam lined presentation case.

Brilliant bit of kit !Got home today from the Mark Sanger demo at Warrington ninety quid lighter! Result for Axy. Amongst my new toys was this dial calliper, and I have to say I am very impressed. I have checked out its accuracy by measuring some new and unused engineering drill bits, and it passed with flying colours. I have used a digital calliper for many years, only a cheap Aldi job and which I have sometimes questioned its accuracy. My main interest is in checking thickness of prepared stock from my thicknesser or hand prepared stock, which I use on my build up of segmented turnings. Feature ring building requires a level of dimensional accuracy not normally required in woodturning, and this little jobbie look to be the thing to use.
