Shop Talk – Digital Buck for Cheap Depth Indicator!

Please visit for more information on this and many other projects! A viewer shared these Automotive Calipers with me and they are super cheap and when I say “super” I mean dirt cheap! I could think of a a zillion and one applications for these but how to mount them became the issue. So we designed this mounting buck that the calipers will snap into and you can add into all kinds of projects! In addition there is also a 3mm hole to add an M3 to cinch it up if needed be but have not found a case yet require it. Note: this model is intended to be used in your designs
