WHS Site and Forum Registration. (24 Jul 2018)

On the front page under the pic it reads, "Due to all the spammers the register link for the WHS Forum has been removed. If you want to sign up for the WHS Forum just give us a call, information is on the contact us page. Thank You."

You can give me a call at and I can set you up. It's more work for me but I feel it's worth it to keep the site clean. Thanks. :thumb1

I have always wanted a digital one that does fractions and finally found one on clearance from one of my suppliers with a price I could live with. Price - $20.00. :woo

cool never ran across one that reads out in fractions...
but its just plain amazing what can be made today at little cost,
you paid $20 for it and the seller still made money as did the maker of it.
30 years ago i bought a mitutoyo "dial" caliper that was top notich because it was just a 0.100 per rev.
paid well over $100 for it and took fire because it was imported
my son once referred to a micrometer as this" C clamp thing"
i hate to say it i am getting old and times are changing


I picture Geno laying out air lines with a michinists level and laser transit
than cutting pipe to size to be checked with his new calipers.

Who told you I would do that?! :ignore


OK, I guess I do stuff like that, I sorta did the shop air lines like that and have those tools, and an electric pipe threader. But, if I could find someone else to do things halfway right I wouldn't have all these tools and all this work to do! I think you know the feeling... :rolling

I hear you Geno sometimes it just dont pay.
Pride mixxed with talent and common cents arent such a bad thing.

i am sure anyone of us on here has regret hiring out work.
been in spots that were so bad i could not even reuse anything.
having to redo a job hurts
but paying for labor and buying parts twice sucks.

Very cool caliper! That's a tool I use almost daily but I wouldn't know how to act if mine read fractions.:smile2

I just wanted fractions so I could nudge it a little open or closed to see what it's close to in 16ths. Quicker than going to a calculator or computer. :)
