Nifty Modelling Tools
NOBLNG posted a topic in Tips, Tricks, and TutorialsIf anyone has any nifty tools, especially ones that are not normally associated with model building...post them up! I don’t know where I got this? I found it one day in the garage with a bunch of drill bits. It has three collets that will take anything from a #80 up to 1/16”. I use it by hand, in my cordless drill and in my drill press. It runs very true.😁
Digital Caliper Modification
NOBLNG posted a topic in Tips, Tricks, and TutorialsI use my dial calipers a lot, but find the equal thickness jaws make it difficult for any scribing or marking chores. So I bought a set of digital calipers off Kijiji for $15 just so I could modify them like so. I super glued a small strip of metal to the fixed jaw. Being digital, they can be zeroed and will still read accurate through the entire scale. They now work as a scriber and it’s a lot easier to measure from the edge of a sheet or rod. Edit: Be aware, only the outside jaws read accurate after this modification.
