Designed by chairmaker Peter Galbert, this unique caliper greatly improves speed and accuracy when turning between centers. With it, you can quickly work your way along the spindle and establish the diameter at each position, eliminating the need for constantly resetting a conventional caliper or having multiple calipers set to different dimensions.
You simply hold the tool behind the spinning work with one hand and register it in the cut as you part in; the direct-reading scale indicates the diameter as it diminishes, allowing you to stop at exactly the right size. Used on work 2-3/4" in diameter or less, it has a reading range of 2-3/4" to 1/2".
A sturdy tool, made in USA from stainless steel and polycarbonate.
