This plastic vernier caliper may be used to measure outer diameter, inner
diameter and depth of different objects up to 6 inches or 15 centimeters.
|A plastic vernier caliper is a
valuable addition to every tool box and may be used by students,
educators, hobbyists and professionals to perform basic measurements or
just learn how a caliper functions.
This educational caliper is graduated to
measure with precision of 0.05 mm or 1/128 inch.
The parts of this caliper include:
- Outside large jaws: used to measure
external diameter or width of an object
- Inside small jaws: used to measure
internal diameter of an object
- Depth probe: used to measure depths of an
object or a hole
- Main scale: scale marked every mm
- Main scale: scale marked in inches and
- Vernier scale gives interpolated
measurements to 0.05 mm
- Vernier scale gives interpolated
measurements in fractions of an inch
The vernier caliper give a direct reading of the
distance measured with high accuracy and precision. This caliper comprise a
calibrated scale with a fixed jaw, and another jaw, with a pointer, that slides
along the scale. The distance between the jaws is then read in different ways
for the three types.
The simplest method is to read the position of the pointer directly on the
scale. When the pointer is between two markings, the user can mentally
interpolate to improve the precision of the reading. This would be a simple
calibrated caliper; but the addition of a vernier scale allows more accurate
interpolation, and is the universal practice; this is the vernier caliper.
Vernier caliper can measure internal dimensions (using the uppermost jaws),
external dimensions using the lower jaws, and depth by the use of a probe that
is attached to the movable head and slides along the centre of the body. This
probe is slender and can get into deep grooves that may prove difficult for
other measuring tools. The depth probe in this caliper is made of metal, not

are dual scale and high precision. This vernier scales include metric measurements on
the lower part of the scale and inch measurements on the upper. They can show measurements in millimeters or inches. Accuracy is 0.05
millimeter or 1/128 inch.
Before using your caliper inspect
your device to make sure that big jaws can close tightly and there are no gaps
between them when they are closed. If you see any problem, do some cleanup to
correct it. Also make sure that the depth probe is aligned with the tail end of
the caliper when the caliper is closed.
