  • This is a good explanation of how to use calipers. I would also add that calipers will only provide accurate measurements if they have been calibrated against a standard in a metrology lab. For most people that really isn't a requirement, and they can get away with using them off the shelf. If you drop your calipers, know that they can no longer be relied on unless tested with gauge blocks. One last thing, when taking measurements, the jaws have to be perpendicular to the measured surface for an accurate reading.

No public wish lists :(
