Can you read this thing for me again? It can be frustrating trying to read measurements on precision instruments like calipers or micrometers. |
If you don’t use it often, a micrometer can be confusing to read. There’s math involved to make mistakes even more likely. Just being able to see the lines and numbers can be hard.
But in the engineering community sometimes a thousandth of an inch means the difference between success and equipment failure.
Bearing measurements. Plate thickness. Quality assurance. There are many applications that need precision measurements. And if you need help to read them, what do you do? Ask a co-worker? Not only is that a pain in the a**, but it slows down production. And what if you’re a one man show today? What do you do then?
The good news is the old micrometer and caliper designs are on the way out. Newer instruments still have the same ranges, still measure accurately down to .0001". Only now they’re digital and you can actually read them!
You can spend 100's of dollars on these important instruments – but you don’t have to. Here’s two digital products that are less than $50 each.
This is the Anytime Tools 1" Digital Outside Micrometer. You can accurately read down to .0001". It has a finished and ground spindle and carbide anvil. Let’s just say it’s durable. You’re not going to damage it carrying it around – not with the padded case that’s included. Not only is this beauty on sale for $27.95 it also comes with free shipping. But with only 19 in stock this sale won’t last for long!
1 Inch Digital Micrometer
I talked to you about micrometers and calipers, so here’s my choice of caliper. It’s a 6" LCD Digital Caliper sold by Electronix Express. Of course it’s got the extra large display so you can see it no matter what position it’s in. Of course it’s accurate down to ± .001". Of course it comes with a molded plastic case and extra battery. This caliper got 4 out of 5 stars by 438 customers on Amazon.com. It’s definitely popular – at only $11.50 each and 15 in stock – now is the time to buy.
6 Inch Digital Calipers
You know production matters – but in engineering precision matters more. Stop wasting time trying to read, maybe even guess (I hope not) what the reading is. Click on the links to purchase these today. Your boss, your eyes, and the people who rely on you will appreciate it.
