I'm going to try annealing the brass to see if it stops the fins from bending as I machine them.
Its true some M.I.C. Callipers eat batteries. In the early 90s when MIC Calipers first appear in the Singapore Market,nobody would buy them as after a while the display became Christmas Tree Lights. Batteries on Mitutoyo will last a very long time. However its S$25 v/s S$180. The replacement MIC Calipers bought lately did last. When you drop Caliper the inside prongs get damaged.Replacement is not painful. Normally I would drag aside the sales assistant and ask for his honest advice. His best advice would be avoid the cheaper caliber. Ha Ha.Hi Paul
Im glad to hear you and your wife on the mend. Were having a bit of a hot spell here too. Might not sound like much but it hit +1 today and for Alberta in mid-January Ill take.Thm:
One of the reasons I chose this caliper for hacking up was that it eats button batteries for breakfast. Digging around on the internet I found that with some of the Chinese calipers when you turn them off all that shuts down is the display. With this one the difference between on and off was around 5 milliamps so if I forgot to remove the battery it would be dead in under a week. This past weekends mod was to add a small on/off switch and a AAA battery holder.
Im looking forward to following along with the radiator.
