Have wondered about building a screen that sits on top of the lathe and mirrors what your caliper or micrometer is reading

Not the same but in the same domain

I like the idea especially if you could get the data into fusion 360 as well.

If anyone is going to the USA I would love a set of Neiko 01407A Caliper’s :slight_smile:
