Dial caliper gage

A dial caliper gage is a particular design of caliper gage that must be operated manually. The measurement from a dial caliper gage must be read and interpreted by the operator and requires practice and experience. Dial caliper gages are great for making both direct and comparative measurements. Typically, the jaws of a dial caliper gage can slide past each other which allows for very small or narrow measurement dimensions.
