    Well this will upset a few.

    Hunting round today looking for my bag of peanuts I put on the bench back in November and spied a plastic box I didn't recognise, blue long and thin.

    Inside was one of the cheap £6.99 digital verniers, no idea where it came from as our importer only has the black boxed ones, even rang him to check.
    New battery and it works as it should, that makes me about 2,566 of these thing [ approx ] kicking about the place when thinking about the next job kicked in and I decided to modify these to suit.

    So ground the jaws right back on the bench grinder, stuck a blob of Stellite on the moving jaw and cleaned it all up with the dremmel.

    Result, a pair of 21st century odd leg calipers.




    Close, zero off, read off your dimension and scribe along the work, it's just like a hand held vernier hight gauge that vertically challenged

    Second tip of the day, Pentel fat blue marker pen instead of marking blue, less mess, goes where needed and impossible to spill and you don't finish up with a blue hampton when you go for a jimmy riddle.

            Since most of what I do is on firearms, I use red magic marker, as I can see it better against a blued or Parkerized surface...sometimes Dykem or black or blue magic marker disappears against a finished gun part's surface color.

              -Hell, I haven't used Dykem in at least a decade. I buy a 10 or 20-pack of wide-tip black markers from the local warehouse store about every three or four years and use those.

              They rarely dry out- more often, the tip gets ruined with some oil, or frays badly trying to mark a rough-milled surface or something, but hey, they're like fifty cents each. Chuck it and grab a fresh.

              Never liked Dykem- didn't like the hassle of even the mop-top cans, didn't like the imprecision of application, didn't like the blue fingertips. The pens are easy, quick, cheap.

                Not sure I left enough of a clue as to what the blue dye was drying hard on.

                  There's a fair number of 'mericans that understand what you meant, as back in the 80's, Sammy Hagar came out with his "Standing Hampton" album.....

                    Allow me to point out the painfully obvious, which in this particular case is that "context is everything".......

                    In the rather likely situation that you haven't the least idea what the comment meant, work backwards from "loo"...............

                        I use my sharpie marker and airgun as a spray painter, just hold the marker tip right in front of the air nozzle and blast some marker paint on.

                              Nothing wrong with that.


                              How's that rhyming slang work on that one? Piddle becomes riddle??? Hampton I have no clue what the orginal word would have been.
