Bisecting Calipers


These calipers solve the problem of trying to find the centre-point between measurements on curved surfaces.

They are especially useful for Luthiers and other musical instrument makers, as well as people working in physical media, where the surface is not flat – eg: wood-turning and pottery.

They work in flat surfaces as well, so artists and designers might find them useful – especially useful in media with delicate or unfinished surfaces – eg: not-quite-dried oil-paint where a ruler will make a mess.

They are 7.2″ / 180mm long.
They bisect distances up to 12″ / 300mm

Why buy from Golden Mean Calipers?

Because I make the best quality Golden Mean Calipers in the world.

When you buy from me, you’re buying from the original designer.

You will probably see copies of my designs elsewhere, but the quality is surprisingly bad. I have been making calipers for 14 years now… I collect them… and I go to a lot of trouble to make sure mine are better than anyone else’s.

Everything I produce comes with a life-time guarantee… and if you have any questions, you get to talk to the original designer.

If there’s anything out of the ordinary you’d like… from bespoke logos (or materials) for the case, to specific design-requests, I’m happy to hear what you have in mind

If you have any questions – feel free to get in touch. Nick Taylor
