And here is an other kind of thickness caliper, only one side this time.
The trouble with standard commercial thickness calipers is that, if they may have a stop, it is generally only able to hold an opening.
I was looking for something that would rather hold a closure, so I designed this one.
Here is the reason why, in a few pictures :
A normal person, in order to measure a thickness will close the caliper on the piece to be measured :
and then, will have to open the caliper, like that :
but, damn it, how can I retrieve my measure ?
It's the reason why there is this couple of little knurled nut that can keep the memory of the closure of the caliper.
So you can reclose it, and appreciate the measure :
Here it is.
