    A recent Top 5 Digital Micrometers for Machinists article put together and published by Practical Machinist have given the crown to Mitutoyo 293-185, 0 – 1″ IP65 QuantuMike.

    Did you know, Calipers used as a Beauty Hack



    Dubai-based beauty guru, Huda Heidi Kattan, known to her 14.8 million fans as Huda Beauty, demonstrates how to achieve perfect eyebrows using a Mitutoyo Caliper. But how does a Caliper help you create the perfect eyebrows? The Caliper is applied to her forehead as a guide to where to pencil in her brows and then holds the Caliper against her skin as she applies a dark powder to her brows using a small brush.

    She says: 'My secret to making my brows perfectly symmetrical is using a Caliper!' I used this when I got started and it helped so much!'.

    Our Products Helped Create The 3-Wheeled Tilting Bike – (As seen on The Gadget Show!)



    When it comes to creating big innovative projects that require the best and most precise measuring tools available, we were extremely excited to see Mike’s finished project was going to look like when he mentioned he was going to create a 3-Wheeled Tilting Vehicle. Accurate measurements were key to building and completing the project on-hand, which is why Mike turned to Machine-DRO for his reliable purchases of an Encoder and a Left Handed Caliper.

    Thankfully, the 3-Wheeled Tilting Vehicle was a great success and is fully functioning, demonstrating clean cornering and manoeuvrability. It has become such a great success that it has created quite a lot of attention amongst petrol heads & engineers, so much so that it has even appeared on MCN and the hit TV program, The Gadget Show!
