Measuring calipers
« on: June 05, 2020, 03:22:07 PM »

Can anyone recommend some calipers capable of measuring spine height accurately please? My calipers are not deep enough to measure spine, only edges. I'm a cheapskate, so not looking to spend many 10s of pounds

Plenty on Ebay, around or under 10. Search for 'Outside calipers'.
Good luck.

Has anyone got any recommendations for this purpose?  Looking for digital ones.

Why a wedding supplier has this in stock, I'm not too sure, but these are the ones I've been using.

Note theyre a bit flexible, so don't squeeze hard to find a reading, just make sure that the calipers are touching the spine and centre of the face for an accurate reading:)

Don't do what I did and buy ones that are >100mm, because you won't be able to measure bat width.

Thanks for the lead. Now they're out of stock though. Must be the rush of purchases from custom bats 😂😂
