A specialised woodturner's caliper designed to measure the wall thickness of bowls up to 500mm in diameter.
The Gage'T frame is made from durable glass-filled nylon. Measuring takes place between a spring-loaded measuring rod and a fixed 'anvil'. The measuring rod has an etched thickness scale marked in 2 mm increments. The measuring points are terminated in large diameter, non-marring, brass contact spheres that enable the wall thickness measurement to be read directly from the scale without any risk of damaging the timber surface as the gauge is slid into position. The maximum measuring depth is 240 mm.
Using this clever-designed 'caliper' will quickly demoinstrate that this is a woodturner's tool designed by a woodturner!
WivaMac are producers of high quality, high performance, superbly built and specified woodturning lathes.
We have worked with WivaMac since our very beginings, indeed we were a customer before we were a retailer. We visited Willy's shop in Belgium where we lived at the time and this was our 'pilgrimage' for woodturning equipment.
We have seen the evolution of the machines over the years. Hemsley Sr. continues to turn on his DB6000 to this day, whilst Hemsley Jr. tackles work on a Zebrano - generations of owners, separated by generations of machines, it seems only fitting really.
To this day, WivaMac continue to put quality manufacturing and innovation top of their list and continue to deliver superbly considred lathes to those who settle for only the best.
