I cannot find the Galbert Caliper online. Does anyone know of a site that is selling them? Thanks, Buck.

MrUnix – the ordering site he suggests at the bottom is a dead site.

That shouldn’t stop you :) A little further investigation came up with this:
http://chairnotes.blogspot.com/p/ordering-calipers-and-drawsharp.html

If that doesn’t do it.. you could always try contacting him directly:

It looks like a well made tool and it only costs $60.

Weee doggies! That thing is slicker than a frog on ice !

And in looking at it, I agree that 60 bucks doesn’t sound too bad for it !

I’m not a turner and don’t know crap about it. I watched the video where it look like he was holding the gauge in one hand and the turning tool in the other.

My question…..is it safe to turn with only one hand on the cutting tool.

Absolutely … I do it all of the time with a gouge or parting tool or calipers. Works best if you have really sharp tools.
