Hi. Andrea here for In today's video I'm going to demonstrate how to use a digital caliper. Just like our brass caliper it measures in millimeters and in inches but this one is digital so you have to first turn it on. It comes with a battery already in it. It's ready to use. Depending on if you want your measurement in millimeters or inches you going to press this button. Right now it's in millimeters and noticed there's a negative sign in front of the double zero. I want to put it to zero without the negative. I'm going to go ahead and do that. Just like a brass caliper you open it and see it's already measuring. I'm going to insert this large glass bead. Let's see. So that is exactly twenty seven point nine millimeters. Then go back to zero. Just like the brass caliper you can measure to inside diameter of objects. You're going to use this side of the caliper instead of this side for that purpose. SO I have some chain links here. What I'm going to do is just insert this end into the chain link and I'm going to pull the same direction that I did to measure the outside diameter. It's going to tell me right there that the inside diameter from side to side of this chain link is seven point seven millimeters. Always when you're done with this tool you can turn it off and that will help preserve the battery. That is the digital caliper from Go to for all of your beading supplies needs!
