WOOD magazine review

Carter Products Snap Gauge compact caliper

Review Summary

Why keep a 6" caliper in your apron pocket or by your planer when you work mostly with material 1" thick or less? Carter Products’ spring-loaded Snap Gauge gives you a quick reference in a flash for stock up to 1" thick. For accurate measurement, the big round jaws make it obvious when the gauge isn’t sitting flat. The display reads in inches or millimeters and is accurate to within .0005". That’s good enough for us.
