It turns out that the caliper can be removed not only linear, but also angular dimensions, for example, the amount of taper or slope of different parts. To obtain such a tool, improving, for example, is known to many caliper type SHC-1 (“revolver”) with a probe of the depth gauge. The limit of its linear measurements is 130mm, which will fully satisfy the business needs of Amateur Craftsmen.
The essence of the improvement consists in the following.
Sponge and frame of Vernier it is necessary to prepare according to Fig.1. It does not reduce the rigidity of the tool and will allow you to measure the taper of the external surfaces, and holes and recesses.
The relationship of the measured angles with the length of the jaws is quite simple (Fig. 2): slope angle And the solution of the jaws determined by the formula S = L-tgA, where L is the length of the jaws, equal to 40 mm; taper angle = 2A the solution of the jaws D is determined by the formula-D = 2C = = 2L-tgB/2. Every corner In the corresponding solution of D, that is, if In=1°, D=0.7 mm if=5°, D=3.5 mm if=115°, then D=125,6 mm, etc.
