Use of vernier caliper, calliper or pachymeter with main scale in inch and vernier scale in fractional resolution 1/128in

The vernier caliper is a instrument of measurement endowed of one scale and one cursor that slides on that. It was designed to external linear measures by contact. It also can measure internal measures, depths, saliences among others. It's possible that this instrument is the most common metrology one used in the metal mechanic industry.

The mais scale of this simulator is graduated in inch - english system or imperial of british measure - that is divided in fractions. The vernier divides the 1/16in (one-sixteenths of inch) by eight, marking the 1/128in (one hundred and twenty eight avos of inch).
