A Must-Have Tool. Digital calipers from iGaging add an essential degree of precision to your woodworking. Frequently, just a couple thousandths of an inch is the measure of success or failure. For example, we all know a properly sized tenon is only a few thousandths smaller than the mating mortise size. Use these rugged digital calipers to measure inside or outside diameters, drill, and router bit sizes, the thickness of wood, width of a dado, and depth of a rabbet or hole.
The New Coolant-Cal from iGaging Has Outstanding Features. This 6" caliper is the ultimate in rugged performance. Designed for use in the metal machining world, it is resistant to the liquid coolants used when machining metals. For woodworkers, this also means it is waterproof to a depth of 3.3 feet for 30 minutes and offers outstanding dust and oil resistance.
All models have a smooth action thumb wheel and lock screw, have a precision-machined stainless steel body, and a large readout display. The press of a button changes the readout from thousandths of an inch to millimeters. The standard model also displays fractional inches. They come with two lithium batteries and a sturdy protective case.
Bluetooth Connectivity. With the optional built-in Bluetooth connectivity, you can quickly transfer measurement data to smartphone and PC applications with each click of a button. The application can be a Word document, spreadsheet, email, CAD program, or any application that accepts keyboard input.
For angle measurements, consider iGaging's 3rd Generation Angle Cube or the new Digital Level, both also available with Bluetooth connectivity.
