Venier caliper

The manual vernier caliper is a precision tool used to measure internal, external distances and depth extremely accurately. Measurements are interpreted from the scale by the user and the manual vernier caliper has both imperial and a metric scale. Vernier calipers are rugged and have long lasting accuracy.

This convenient tool is used when measuring the length of an object, the outer diameter of a round or cylindrical object, the inner diameter of a pipe, and the depth of a hole.

To insure that the vernier caliper is properly zeroed, caution must be taken. Through misuse, it is most likely that the vernier caliper will not read zero when the jaws are perfectly closed, leading to zero errors. To correct this, a zero correction must be made. A correction may be either positive or negative. If the first mark on the auxiliary scale lies to the right of the main scale. Then the reading is too large and the error is positive. Likewise, negative zero error occurs when the jaws of the vernier caliper are closed.  The reading is a negative reading and the correction should be added from the measurement reading. You also get a dial caliper and digital calipers in our range too.

The barometer is an instrument for measuring atmospheric pressure, used especially in weather forecasting. Atmospheric pressure changes with distance above or below sea level, a barometer can also be used to measure altitude.  An aneroid barometer indicates pressure on a dial using a needle that is mechanically linked to a partially evacuated chamber. This responds to pressure changes. Italian scientist, Evangelista Torricelli invented the barometer in 1643. Evangelista Torricelli used a column of water in a tube, 34 ft (10.4 m) long.  Fishermen are keen strategists using a barometer to determine fish behaviour trends.
