This equipment is safety category 6: Other equipment with no limits

This equipment is Noise Category 3: Can be used at all hours. No limits.

Handle with care - fragile ! Handle with care.

Dit is een precise instrument / This is a (precision) measurement tool with exact dimensions and straightness.

That means tapping it gently; but not hammering, or using it as a crowbar and so on (if you need a crowbar - these are wonderful for that !)

It is very important that if you accidentally drop it; or think it may be out of line - that you either mark the tool very clearly -- or report this to the mailing list. So that your fellow makers do not ruin their work.

We have several micrometers indicators in the metal woodshop. Consult youtube for countless videos on how to use them. Or ask someone to show you.

Be very gentle with these. They are fragile and not cheap.
