This class will cover the design, forging and assembly to make a double caliper. This tool is a classic forge shop measuring instrument. The double caliper is used to measure rough and then finished forged dimensions as well as the width and thickness of a forging. Students will choose a design then forge all the elements and embellish the handle to personalize their caliper. With this project students will learn accurate forging techniques, hot splitting, hot punching and riveting.
