|Description: A large pair of metal outside callipers. The arms of the callipers are joined together at the front by a round bolt. The ends of the arms are pointed. The arms can be moved apart to change the distance between them. |
Items belonged to Fred Nogas which he collected over the past 50 years. Fred was originally from the Niagara region and some of these tools belonged to his grandfather who had a farm in the area. Others were bought in Mississauga and various places in southern Ontario. Fred has lived in Clarkson since 1960 where he kept this collection of tools.
Calipers are a device used to measure the distance between two symmetrically opposing sides. More specifically, outside calipers are used to measure the external size of an object.
