Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Micrometer Gauge Box Set!

To aid in his machining projects, Adam recently picked up a full set of micrometer screw gauges–precision calibrated tools for measuring his machined parts and components. Today’s One Day Build is a deep dive into how measurement affects machining processes and the ways to achieve ultra-precise measurement, and the customization of a beautiful wooden case to organize and hold all of these important gauges.

  1. I would have thought some little sleeves that fit over the micrometer + standard would have been an easier solution to the 3-hand calibration problem.

  2. Can you post the name of the pens you have used in other videos to write in white ink on shop labels?
