My Mitutoyo Calendar was a bit late arriving this year.
Normally I get it before Christmas, but it still hadn't arrived by the middle of last week so I rang to give them a little nudge and see if it would be here before Easter.
Well this morning I got back from a client meeting to find this huge box from Mitutoyo on my desk, and when I opened it up they hadn't sent me 1 Calendar, they had sent 18 of them!
They also sent a whole pack of wallcharts, none of which I have any more space in the workshop for unfortunately.

Still, bit of a result on the Calendars though. :D

One of the UK members was kind enough to drop-ship me a Mitutoyo calendar last year. December has two gorgeous (but clothed ;) ) women standing in provocative poses. My two year old Son came into the shop, saw the calendar, and excitedly pointed: "Whoa, whoa whoa!!!"

My Wife and I were puzzled -- surely he couldn't be a horn dog at 2? Then he walked up to the calendar and pointed "wheel! wheel!"

There's a mag wheel in the bottom right of the calendar. Hadn't noticed :p

Impossible - there's nothing mysterious about them. They're probably the best understood tool in the box. Ask anyone. :D

Peter, I guess you'll be busy scanning photos soon?

Thats a nice little gift they sent you. Its like pulling teeth around here to get free calendars. Especially if you want them covered with good looking semi clothed gals.

Any of the charts worth keeping for more than just one read through? Drill charts are about all I hang up 'round the shop. Everything else is somewhere I can quickly grab for a needed reference.

cheers!

Half of the charts they sent would be fine in an apprentice workshop, as they describe basic things like calipers, clocks, and height gauges.
The SPC chart will be useful on the factory floor (wall) as a reminder or quick reference and I already have the profile measurement and hardness conversion chart.
I'm like you Jim in that I just have drill size or metric/imperial conversion charts hung the wall in a couple of places.

No co-ax feeding instructions though :D

Yep. Pm addy and I'll get it off this week.
I mentioned it another (Bike) forum too, and demand for them has been a bit thick and fast - only got a few spare left now!

Your son's comments remind me of when my son asked about the picture of a lady in a bikini holding a model airplane on the front of a magazine. My wife heard and commented "Why son, shes the one who built the model of course...."
