    How to Measure the Thickness of a Brake Disc

    Measuring the thickness of your brake discs has never been easier thanks to these two measuring tools we stock, the 60mm Vernier Brake Disc Caliper & Digital Thickness Calipers. These two precision measuring tools are practical to use and give accurate readings when you need them most.

    With the Digital Thickness Caliper, the sprung loaded jaws help to centre the contact pads, to ensure an accurate reading every time. The 9mm diameter 2mm thick pads on the jaws of the Caliper allow the measurement to be taken even when the unworn edge of the brake disc protrudes, the Caliper pads ensure that the Caliper measures square at 90 Degrees to the surface

    All EagleEyes on The Death Ray (Customer Project)

    We have many customers sending us their fantastic projects with the help of our products, this time it is our EagleEye unit which has been fundamental to this ground station project which is almost completed, called ‘The Death Ray’. With the fitting of our EagleEye unit, our customer has created his very own custom tracker system container which will enable him to track live data of his RC Models when they are flying around the skies.

    The extra LED screen takes note of the GPS co-ordinates and the phono sockets have been extended because the sockets are at the back of the EagleEyes. The DVR unit will be sitting on top of the station, with the temporary wiring at the back will power the DVR.

    We’re looking forward to seeing the completed Death Ray in action with a live logging system of the RC Model’s performance in the sky.
