digital calipers

When I got my 1st dial caliper, the improvement in usability over my vernier
caliper was remarkable. My dial caliper remains my favorite, and most used tool.
I have had occasions to use digital calipers, and I don't think the usefulness
increase was significant enough to warrant me ever considering it as a
replacement for my dial caliper. I don't have to worry about battery issues,
either.

finish line, but that's very seldom.

Digital Caliper

Ed <nprybiged@...>
 

All this bad talk about battery operated Calipers.
Take a look at Micro Mark no.82556 6" long Digital
Caliper that measures .0005 or .01mm for $19.95.

Mirco Mark No. 83762 6" long D.C. that measures
.0005 or .01mm and factional inches in 1/64th also
has a 2 step funtion.

Both of these have ON/OFF switchs that allows
longer battery life. Micro Mark advises that
replacement battiers are same as hearing air
battiers. Theae are available at all Drug Stores.

Micro Mark did offer a 14" Digital Caliper with
all the above funtions, but have SOLD OUT. Like
a dummy I put off buying one. They SOLD for
$59.95.

The site has an expired digital certificate. So depending on how your firewall is set and your antivirus, it will abort or ask if you want to run the program pr just run it anyway. The certificate is from an approved site but expired. Not sure if that is a problem with the web host or the Society's page.

I do not know how A&S acquired these gons, and I also cannot find any photos
of them, but I did see a gon that looked exactly like these cars on the A&S a
long time ago, and then more recently, and indeed, my 1963 ORER has 20 cars
in series 340 to 359, and lists the very same dimensions - 50'6" IL, 70-ton,
3' IH, 1439 cu ft.

It is also very hard to get data on the dynamics of how all these RRs shared,
leased and/or sold cars to one another. Assembling data from numerous ORERs
might be one way, but I have also been mining data provided by others that
own original RR records, to get an idea on what cars the A&S, B&LE (where
they lasted a very long time), EJ&E (who had none that I can find), Lake
Terminal (who had 200 cars in the early 50's, and they DID travel),
McKeesport Connecting (100 cars that also traveled far and wide), and Union
RR (1000 cars, dropping to 609 by 1952, with some going to other roads),
swapped, leased and sold their cars.

It took a lot of persuasion to get this car done, but it was really needed.
BTW, the one-piece body kit is coming, with interior detail.

Re: Digital Calipers

So.... for $200 I save the trouble of going to the local Radio Shack
every other year to buy a $6 battery??? I know folks pay a premium for
alleged convenience (e.g. fast food, bottled water) but that's getting
kinda ridiculous.

An 8" caliper would be nice, though. Mine (Harbor Freight) is only 6".

Tim

I always get a kick out of people complaining that the battery is always dead in their cheap Chicom calipers; with equipment like this, you truly do get what you pay for.

Enco has the Mititoyo 8" solar version for a shade under two hundred:

http://www.use-enco.com/CGI/INSRIT?PMAKA=610-0047&PMPXNO=952913&PARTPG=INLMK3

These occasionally go on sale, although it's more common to see the run of the mill 6" Mit on sale.
