The calculators should work fine, but since there are so many uses around the shop a caliper, dial or digital, metric or otherwise, can be had quite reasonably. No reason to pay more than $20 unless you just like collecting tools. Accurate even if the blank maker doesn't use a uniform taper.


I do use digital calipers for mine, but I hadn't seen the calculator before. The nice thing about it is that I don't have to wait to have my parts on hand before measuring. Now I could order the check with the blank. I look forward to trying it out!


One thing that I do when ordering supplies is have them recheck for proper sizing of the winding check and tip top in the their comment section. They are more than happy to do it for me.
