    Default Left hand calipers

    I found this company; http://www.medfordtools.com/index.html

    Anyone know any others who offer left handed calipers, mics, etc.?

    I saw a Mic labeled as "left handed" the other day, I think it was Starrett? Just had the numbers on the opposite side of normal...

    Here is a link to H&H Industrial Products left handed calipers. Their sales office address is the same as Little Machine Shop's. Don't know if they can be ordered through LMS, though.

    Picked up a copy of their catalog at Westec and they have a nice range of products at decent prices. Have used one of their milling vises that seemed to be of better than the usual "import" quality.

    Thank you all.

    I'm not left handed either but most of the time it feels more natural making measurements that way.

    A left hand rule and tape measure would be nice too.
    I'm on a quest!

    I am lift handed and have used right handed calipers for so long that trying to use left handed ones would probably freak me out.

    Default left hand calipers

    As another lefty in your right handed world, I've adapted so a mic feels right in my right hand. Scissors too, and I don't even turn them upside down. But I hate those school desks with the table part on the right, and the "sign here" things with the pen attached to the wrong side. Ah well, at least I'm in my right mind...
