WOOD magazine review

Hyper-accuracy within easy reach

Review Summary

Whether checking the thickness of a tenon, the depth of a mortise, the spacing of box joints, or the diameter of a counterbore, this handy caliper delivers precision like no measuring tape or rule can. The large dial’s 1⁄64" graduations make it easy to read, and when I’m feeling really picky, the inner dial provides 1/100" increments. It also comes in handy for setting up machines, such as dialing in router bit and tablesaw blade heights. —Bob Saunders
