Digital calipers add an essential degree of precision to your woodworking. They present their measurements as single numbers, not subject to inference or interpretation. 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, thickness of wood, width of a dado, and depth of a rabbet or hole.
The New OriginCal from iGaging Has Outstanding Features. These high-quality calipers feature a large display window with three modes; fractions of an inch, thousandths of an inch and millimeters. It uses ABSOLUTE memory technology to keep track of its origin position once set. Whenever the digital caliper is turned on, the easy-to-read large LCD displays the actual sensor position ready to start measuring. It's not necessary to reset zero and the measuring speed is unlimited. Its ABS feature allows the quick comparison of two measurements at the push of a button, eliminating the need for manual calculations.
All models have a smooth action thumb wheel and lock screw, 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 or fractional inch. They come with two lithium batteries and a sturdy protective case.
Bluetooth Connectivity. With the built-in Bluetooth connectivity, you can easily transfer measurement data to smart phone 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.
Don't need connectivity. Order iGaging's Absolute Origin caliper with similar features, but without Bluetooth connectivity.
For angle measurements consider iGaging's 3rd Generation Angle Cube or the new Digital Level, both also available with Bluetooth connectivity.
