Vesper Tools is pleased to offer these high quality Mitutoyo vernier calipers. We can access the entire Mitutoyo range if you wish to order any specialised measuring equipment but we stock these vernier calipers specially selected for woodworkers.
- 150mm digital verniers.
- 150mm metric only conventional verniers.
- 150mm metric, and fractional inch scales.
- 200mm metric, and decimal inch scale.
All these verniers measure external between the main jaws, internal between the points opposite, and measure depth or length of parts in two other places.
The small depth bar that protrudes from the end of the handle is for depth or length. And on the underside of the head there is another two ground surfaces for measuring length in say a rebate or step down on a part.
As a general rule when selecting vernier calipers one should not expect to easily read reliably or quickly below 0.05mm on the conventional (non digital) calipers. If you want to measure finer than that on a regular basis then you need the digital verniers with their 0.01mm resolution and accuracy, or use the inch function for 0.0005".
The Mitutoyo digital vernier calipers (model# 500-752-20) are the best available and are same as those used daily by Chris Vesper in his workshop making precision tools. Batteries last typically a couple of years. Auto on, auto off. No need to check zero every time you use them. Simply no fuss and you can know they are reading correct every time you pick them up. For example on cheap verniers no matter the brand/reputation you will often have to check and reset its zero by pushing a button or two and wasting time, sometimes before every use. With these Mitutoyo digital verniers I can tell you for a fact that when you close the verniers when you're done for the day and they read for example 0.02mm, you must NOT re-zero them! These verniers will be reading correctly, they are most likely measuring the o.02mm of dust you've left in the jaws... 🙂
