“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

Calipers, Dial Thickness


8 1/4 inch throat, SPCSM


12.5 inch throat, SPCM

The SPCSM calipers are for measuring the thickness of tops and backs. This extremely well made caliper is manufactured in the USA with a dial gauge made in Germany. The gauge measures up to 30mm in 0.1mm increments. The body is CNC machined powder coated aluminum. The throat has a 8 1/4" capacity.

The SPCM has a deeper throat than the SPCSM to measure wider tops or measure farther across regular tops. Notice that the thumb lever pulls the dial measuring pin from the top so that there is no interference between the caliper frame and the wood being measured. This die-cast aluminum tool measures in .1 mm increments mm with a maximum opening of 30 mm.
