The Galbert Caliper

The Galbert Caliper gives a constant, accurate reading of the diameter of a work piece as it is cut.

It's a "Turner's Tape Measure" the operator simply stops cutting when the desired diameter is reached. There is no need to set multiple tools and use them in the correct locations.
The reading range on the caliper is from 2 3/4 inches to 1/2 inches when working on a round 2 3/4 inches or less.

Made in the U.S.A with a stainless steel body, the Galbert Caliper is designed to withstand the rigors of shop life while making turning spindles faster and more fun.

The price is $59.99

International shipping and handling varies by country and retailer

Additional Metric scale $5.00
