Small Golden Mean Calipers in a limited run of neon-colours.

Golden Ratio Calipers

I have a small amount of coloured acrylic which makes very pretty caliper cases.

When I bought the Salmon-Pink acrylic, I was told “this is the last of this colour in the whole country”. Normally I get acrylic in huge sheets – this stuff only comes in small amounts. It’s quite expensive to ship, so unless someone is bringing in an entire shipping container into the country, when it runs out, it runs out.

Anyway – these calipers are the small ones most often used by beauticians, and cosmetic surgeons for measuring facial dimensions : 4.5 inches long.

They measure distances from 1 inch to 7.5 inches change to mm

They they are the most popular for measuring eyebrow dimensions, or dimensions of the human face.

Medium Golden Mean Calipers : 7.2 inches long

They measure distances from 1.5 inches to 12.8 inches change to mm

The medium calipers are the most versatile size – and are used both by artists, teachers and the medical profession.

There is also a special heavy-duty version (2mm thick steel) which are used by farriers to measure ideal horse-shoe sizes.

This design is the original… first created about 8 years ago on ponoko.com.

Large Golden Mean Calipers : 12.6 inches long

They measure distances from 2.3 inches to 23.2 inches change to mm

These are the largest calipers I make – just over a foot long. They are useful for larger projects, eg: furniture or large paintings. People usually buy these as a set of three… because that way you get the small ones free.

These calipers are most often bought by sculptors or artists who work to larger scales, and teachers for demonstration purposes

The default packaging is layers of cardboard… cases are also available, but (compared to the other calipers), they use a lot of materials, and add a lot to postage weight, so to keep costs down I use cardboard packaging as default.

Phi Calipers : Calipers With Scale – two piece calipers with laser-etched scale in both millimetres and inches.

Phi Calipers: 6.3 inches long

Measures from 7.8 inches, down to zero change to mm

These calipers can measure right down to zero – so are useful for precise work. They are made from satin-finished stainless-steel, joined with a brass binder screw and a hand-made nut, allowing you to tighten/loosen the calipers, and which can be removed, allowing the arms to be swapped… if you want to change from millimetres to inches.

These protractors are used to measure hard-to-get “inner” angles, where a normal flat protractor won’t be able to reach – from just under 10° to just over 160°

I was initially asked to make these for cosmetic surgery work – for measuring undersides of noses… but they probably have other uses as well.
