Knowing the wall thickness at all times is crucial to successful woodturning. The Versa-Cal™ Multi Caliper is a multi-functional tool that allows you to check the wall thickness of almost any type of woodturning regardless of shape.
One end is designed for measuring open bowls along with enclosed forms while the other is ideal for measuring deep vases and similar forms. Handy finger cut-outs allow for one hand operation while the powder coat finish help you maintain a positive grip at all times. Unlike conventional double-ended calipers, the Versa-Cal features an offset point design that allows you to reconfigure the caliper for additional measuring options by rotating one section of the caliper 180 degrees.
Available in 7" (17" overall) and 10" (23" overall), the Versa-Cal™ Multi Caliper is the only caliper you need.
Made in USA. Patent pending.

The Craft Supplies USA® Layout Template is useful for laying out bowls or platters. The circular lines eliminate trial and error in selecting for figure or color in the wood, and avoiding defects. The layout template will help the turner find the desired or possible size in a minimum of time. The clear plastic allows one to visually identify choice areas of the stock, speeding up the selection process, and often conserving material. Made from 1/16" flexible plastic with permanent numbers and lines, one only needs to insert a nail through the center hole, a pencil in the diameter hole, and pivot the layout template around the center point to mark the cutting lines. Made in USA.
The Turners Select™ Protractor/Depth Gague is indispensable for setting bevels on tools, measuring and transferring angles and checking the depth of boxes and other small items.

Graduated arm reads in 1/32" inch increments and will measure up to 6".
Quickly mark the center of the workpiece with the Precision Machine™ Center Marker. It is often necessary to know the exact center point on the base of a bowl, particularly when the bowl will be put on a vacuum chuck and the bottom turned to final shape, sanded and finished. If the exact center is marked, the tailstock can be moved up and the cone center put in the indented center point on the base. This will center the bowl accurately.
The center marker collar is designed to fit inside the threads on a chuck or faceplate. The center point slides through the collar and will contact the base of the bowl. When the center point is tapped, the cone point will leave a small indentation marking the true center of the base. This will allow the precise centering of the bowl on a vacuum chuck.
The Apprentice™ Center Punch is a simple device that has long been used for making a small dimple in metal and other hard materials, prior to drilling to prevent the bit from wandering. This handy, inexpensive tool is ideal for woodturning as it can be used to mark screw locations and center points on spindle stock for easy locating of the drive or tailstock center. The knurled surface makes it easy to hold the punch firmly in place while applying sufficient pressure to cause the center point to strike a dimple in the work. Measures 5" long by 5/8" diameter.
*Pressure applied dimple strike *Knurled surface for firm grip *Hardened tip for use w/ hard materials

Marcus Reid is professional woodturner and furniture-maker based locally in Provo, Utah. Originally only doing flat work, he had the good fortune just after he graduated from high school to begin a full-time apprenticeship with master furniture-maker Chris Gochnour in Salt Lake City. This led several years later to working in another small high-end custom furniture shop in Utah where he soon discovered, out of necessity, an aptitude for production spindle turning. He spent several years there as the shop's production turner before opening his own shop, still doing custom production work as well as artistic turning and furniture. He has been a demonstrator at the Utah Woodturning Symposium as well as for woodturning clubs in Utah.
