I know, I know I just started turning. But when I saw this I knew it was the way to go (since spindles and legs are my goal) and I knew I’d need to stop and measure diameter lot of times on each one.
I almost got one of the double calipers, but they require one hand to hold and the other to measure the outboard end. This is easily one handed and you read the diameter, lay it down and keep on going.
It has already told me that I am highly accurate, but not smooth or fast yet…
Yep… 3/4 of an inch
inch and 1/8 here…
inch and 1/2 here…
TOO EASY !!!
It is built like a troop carrier (not frail) and is easy to calibrate. It was $86.50 shipped. I love it already.

Be sure and watch the videos. This guy can turn very quickly and accurately for sure.
5 Stars only because they don’t have 6 available.
