No, this isn't yet another "on-screen caliper" app.

Since I bought a lathe and have started doing some metalwork I have found myself spending a lot of time measuring a piece with calipers and then trying to convert the measurement from thousandths of an inch to fractional inches - usually to find a drill bit.

I wrote CaliperTool to help.

Enter a measurement value in inches or millimeters and CaliperTool will find the closest 1/64" values above and below your measurement and print them along with their respective errors.

It will do the same thing with standard "letter" and "number" drill bits, listing the closest above and below your measurement along with errors.

It will also do a simple metric conversion and list the measurement in millimeters or inches, depending on which unit you entered.

(Press the "Measurement in ..." button to toggle inches/mm entry.)

If you like this app, you might want to check out TapDrillTool elsewhere in the App Store.

Customer Reviews

Bad name and icon, but useful

The nice thing about this app is that given a decimal inch number, it will give you the closest fraction.

The biggest con is that it is hard to find among my other apps since the name and icon do not match the function.

Simple, fast and usefull

Great app for anyone looking for very fast conversions. Love the fact that it's real time info when u scroll through the numbers. Perfect for service techs, machinists, or custom wood workers just to name a few.
