Re: Basic reload question

Having been a machinist I have a hard time spending the money for either dial or digital calipers. I prefer verneer calipers. No gears to jam or needles to break and about 1/10th the price of digitals. Although I don't reccomend them for most reloaders. If money is a concern Robins then dials will do nicely but DONT BUY PLASTIC. ONLY STEEL WILL DO.


Computer or server is acting up guys. I'm out for the night.

Re: Basic reload question

4ked,
I still have the vernier that i got presented with when i finished my machining apprenticeship in 1981, it hardly ever got used and now i cant see well enough to read it consistantly. I cant be bothered to put on my glasses each time i take a measurement, so i bought a digital vernier for back up.

Ian.

Re: Basic reload question

In the first machine shop I worked in my boss and I had to inspect and sort about 1000 plates with holes in them. The holes were either too far apart, acceptable +/- .020 (if I remember right), or too close together. Well he had his fancy Mititoyo digitals and I had the verniers that dad gave me when he quit using them as a mechanic. When it was all done my boss had sorted 20 more parts than I had. He was about 1 minute ahead of me. I have never before or since had such a demand for being fast and accurate so like I said I am hard pressed to "upgrade". The only caveat would be the issue with vision but at 36 trips around the sun (soon to be 37) my vision is 20/20 and I don't see (no pun meant) that changing any tiome soon.

I wonder who else here still uses vernier calipers?
