Caliper gage

A caliper gage is a precision measurement tool that measures the distance between two opposing points on an object. Caliper gages come in a range of designs including a dial caliper gage, an electronic caliper gage, an internal caliper gage, and an external caliper gage. The caliper gage tool can be built to provide measurements in inches or metric units, and often is design to offer both types of units of measurement. The accuracy of a caliper gage depends a great deal on the skill of the operator. These tools are very versatile and can measure over a great distance and from a number of angles.
