STARRETT Outside Lock-Joint Transfer Caliper with fine adjustment
The transfer arm makes it possible to transfer measurements from the inside of chambered cavities, over flanges and other places where it is necessary to move the legs after they have been set to size. Simply lock the joint, loosen the transfer arm binding nut and swing the leg out or in to clear the obstruction. Then move it back against the transfer arm stop and the exact size can then be transferred to a rule or gage.
The adjusting screw permits close adjustments for fine measurements. After the legs have been set to approximate size and the joint locked, the final adjustment is made by a few turns of the knurled adjusting nut. The joint can be quickly and firmly locked by a partial turn of the large knurled disc. A spring washer under the disc maintains proper tension of the legs when the joint is loosened.
The legs are made of high-grade steel and are well-shaped. They are ruggedly constructed and nicely finished. The given sizes are the length of the legs. Their actual measuring capacity is about one third greater than the size of the legs.
Length 150 mm/6 in.
Measuring capacity up to 200 mm/8 in.
You are right: The measuring capacity is greater than the leg.
