I had been reading Peter Galbert's blog about windsor chairs. http://www.chairnotes.blogspot.com/ There are a lot of good tips and general chairmaking information contained within. Just recently I stopped in to see what all was new and saw a new contraption for turning chair parts. Maybe there is someone out there who's seen a tool like this before but I haven't and thought I would share it with you. I did search galbert caliper on the ncww website but nothing came up so I hope this isn't a duplicate post. I haven't used one but I do have a birthday coming up. Has anyone used a caliper like this before, are there other designs out there, better, worse?
Thanks in advance.

I asked for a set of calipers for X-mas a few years ago and got these -

They have come in handy to measure the wall thickness of turnings, although they haven't helped me to stop blowing through the bottom of a bowl. And I have also found them helpful in scaling a project to a larger or smaller size.
