Hi Folks,

I just found what I think is a new tool. This thing is called a Galbert Caliper. Has anyone heard of it & better yet used it. Is it worth $80.00?

IMHO it is a caliper made of steel to measure the diameter of a turning/round chair leg. It looks like it has a measuring gauge on it which would be better then just a caliper that doesn’t.

I watched his videos and I think if I did a lot turning, this would be a handy tool to have. The advantage I see over a standard caliper is you wouldn’t have to stop turning to reset the caliper for different diameters. Unfortunately, I don’t have room for a lathe in my shop, so the only time I get to use one is when I can sneak into the cabinet shop at the local tech school.
