here is to you the CALIPER!
So? Mine's digital.
What is your point?
Is that all the thicker you are???
Mine is too
This is a caliper too
Men are showing their tools!
Aw, Luka, always fascinated by tools and toys.....:smile:
A horse that runs and runs????
Oh, wait. That's a galloper. Sorry, my bad. :shrug:
Maybe I should have used a digital one a while back when I posted my width picture. Never knew how many folks couldn't read a slide caliper
I have some of those Mitutoyo ones too! I use them for Goldsmithing, well sometimes I do, I have a nice set of nice ornate 19th century ones I use for less fine work.
I need a good large set for measuring more than 6". I had to borrow a set when doing some engine work. That one was an analog gauge and took a bit to get used to, but was easy once you zero it out and realize what units your working with.
Also need a bore dial indicator too. And a host of Transmission tools
Mabee santa will bring me a set.
Oh brother..men having a pissing contest over tools?
Pssssssssssssssst, the bigger the better! :biggrin1:
I don't know what I would do without my tools :tongue:
This is a Rapidograph.
Hey hopefully santa hooks you up this year guy. Back in my former life as a nuclear millright/machinist I frequently used those dial indicators, mics, verniers, and such and still do today when I build my streetrods. The Starrett brand is far and away my toy of choice :smile:
I've always use the colloquial Plurale tantum version of the word and called that tool, "calipers". In the same way we use the word "scissors" to refer to a single unit. In some parts of the world, they are called a compass or kompas. Which makes sense, as the simplest calipers are just that.
Anyhow... This is my tool. (it's a Big One) We use the calipers to check the thickness of the wood as it comes out of the Calibration Sanding machine.
This is Calpers
Wow, people still use Rapidographs?!? I used to hate cleaning them and those damn 00's always clogged up.
The days of hand-drawing for technical work are over, but there's still a market for calligraphers and illustrators.
I believe the reason for the caliper ruler is simply accuracy. Measuring anything round or ellipsoid with a straight ruler relies on you "eying" it since the rounded edge, such as your penis head, falls away from the string or ruler. Most LPSG members are prone to exaggerate their sizes this way if they use a tape measure or ruler. A caliper ruler, if it is wide enough, goes over the rounded form to measure the penile width more accurately. I finally used a caliper to measure my ball(s) instead of "eying it" with a string then placing it over a ruler. I was way off before. My caliper dimensions are 2.65"L X 2.25"W x 2.5" Breathe, still very large but not 5 standard deviations larger than normal as originally measured. Slight variations are important since the one standard deviation larger or smaller is but an inch or less, even less than an inch with testicles. It is difficult for the human eye to measure "small variances." I am sure most of you realize by now that only three inches of erect penis length separates the average from that "monster" one- in- a million. Again, measuring an egg shape ellipsoid is difficult and our balls are not perfect ellipsoids. Measuring a penis width is also difficult without a caliper because a penis is not flat or rectangular in shape. But, sadly, most members are really not that interested in accuracy, only in comparing themselves with one another- so they don't care. Until there is a standard way of measuring penile dimensions this issue will never be resolved. See my Christmas post from last year!
