Lesson 2/Learning Event 2
The inside caliper is set to a dimension by placing the end of a scale and
one point of the caliper against a solid surface and adjusting the other leg
to the proper graduation, Figure 27, Part A.
SETTING AND USING INSIDE CALIPERS (A AND B)
To adjust the inside caliper to the work, open the legs wider until they
touch the work, Figure 27, Part B. Always position the caliper on the axis
of the work.
Figure 28 illustrates correct and incorrect positioning of the calipers with
relation to the axis of the work.
