OneTIME Tool - Classic Inside/Out Calipers - 2015 - Retired November 9, 2015
Discovered In The Famous Studley Tool Chest, Woodpeckers Updates The Classic Register Caliper In Two Sizes.
When Tradition Trumps Technology. Before the machine age and the industrialization of woodworking, even Master woodworkers used relatively few tools to produce magnificent work. Among those tools was a single caliper capable of measuring both inside and outside dimensions and show the measurement on a scale, or register. Clearly, this tool was the forerunner of today’s dial and digital caliper. Woodpeckers newest OneTIME Tool, the Inside/Out Caliper, updates this classic tool using tempered stainless steel while retaining the tool’s traditional, elegant design.
The Simple Joys Of Classic Caliper Use. Woodworkers know the caliper is a great tool for measuring round objects like cylinders or holes, and is indispensable for spindle work on the lathe. But calipers are also handy for taking a quick measurement of, say, stock thickness while planing; the size of odd shaped objects or the width of a dado or tenon. The Inside/Out register caliper can do all this in a heartbeat including the dimension reading on the laser engraved scale. No need to get a ruler to measure the caliper or find your decimal equivalent of an inch chart to translate your dial caliper reading. It’s so easy to use!
A Beautiful Tool Built to Last. Woodpeckers Inside/Out Caliper is a tool that not only works well, but is great looking, too. The elegant shape is pleasing to the eye and practical. The tempered stainless steel legs have a perfect, non-glare satin finish making the crisp laser engraved, 1/16” scale very easy to read. Even the tight tolerance brass parts are turned in-house on our swiss style lathes.
Choose From Two Sizes, Or Order the Set! We offer our classic Inside/Out Calipers in two sizes. The small caliper is 4-3/8” long with inside or outside measuring capacity of 3”. It’s a perfect fit for your shop apron. The larger caliper is 6-1/2” long with a capacity of 4-1/2”. This larger capacity is ideal for bench and lathe work. Both sizes are also offered with 1mm metric scales. Order both sizes as a set and you’ll save money and get a sturdy plastic case with custom cut foam interior for protective storage.
