Calipers…

There are 3 sizes… I can make different sizes to order.
If you buy a set of 3, you get the small ones (and postage) free.
All lovingly hand made, by me :)

Cases…

Here are some cases for the various sizes of calipers…

Cool and Unusual…

These are experiments, prototypes, or calipers that are a bit different from the standard models…


  • Phi Calipers : Calipers With Scale

    Phi Calipers : Calipers With Scale

    Phi Calipers : Calipers With Scale

    - two piece calipers with laser-etched scale in both millimetres and inches.

    These calipers can measure from 200mm or 7.8 inches, down to zero - so are useful for precise work. They are made from hand-brushed stainless-steel, joined with a brass binder screw - which can be removed, allowing the arms to be swapped... if you want to change from millimetres to inches.

    They come with a laser-cut rimu case with a sliding lid that is clicks into place with magnets. The case is hand-made, finished with two coats of tung oil, the 2nd coat applied with fine sandpaper.

    These calipers were made with cosmetic surgeons in mind... but can be used by anyone who has detailed or small-scale projects.
