This month I’ll have a brief look at the Dial caliper!
It can measure external thicknesses for example measuring the exact thickness of a drawer front, and it can measure internal sizes too, for example measuring the size of a hole.
Some calipers just have a ruler scale and other like mine have a small anolog dial, you can also get digital dials. Dials allow the caliper to be zeroed which makes for more accurate readings especially if the caliper has had a knock.
That’s all for this month, look out for next months tool!
