Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

I have a very quick question.

On a vernier calliper, what are the names of the measuring teeth that define the limits of measurement?

Thanks

The 'jaws' are the metal prongs which are slid around (or inside) the item which is being measured. Is that what you were asking?

Yes I put that down.

Many thanks for the reply.
