    And I should follow your lead? LMAO

    I wonder how many know how many of my posts you follow, read and comment with no other obvious intention than to try and take them/me off track. Like now

    How many relevant posts have you made to the subject of metrology?

    Leigh and I might not always have agreed but we still exchanged friendly emails.

    Update.
    I've just checked. You've started 15 threads and every one in General. Only 1 in the last 4 years though.

    Are you saying that I am not allowed to read your posts unless I agree with them?

    No, that's certainly not what I'm saying and you are side tracking again.

    What would interest me is you showing me a metrology relevant post/contribution by you to this particular sub forum.

    Thinking out loud. IMHO, a moderator doesn't really need to be proficient in the forum subject. But he should be a man respected by the community, one which is fair, not temperamental or biased. This completely rules out certain well known personalities, our resident self appointed police, clowns and trolls. They're already too busy doing what they chose to be doing.

    Nobody told me that I had to start threads to be a member,here.
    Did you check to see how many of my posts were spam?

    What have you been smoking? He would be the one running them off track by hurling insults out of left field. I was insulted by him for saying I never trusted digital calipers.

    I'm sure you agree with this.

    Vernier Calipers: Best Models and Why You Should Use Them - Practical Machinist : Practical Machinist

    Here's some information that might help you understand why I write what I do about calipers and from an advert.

    Although digital calipers are the most popular type these days (at least according to the Practical Machinist community), some machinists still choose to use the old school Vernier model for a number of reasons:

    1. They are generally cheaper than their electronic counterpart.
    2. They are easier to read than dial calipers.
    3. They can last much longer.
    4. They don’t need to have their batteries replaced.

    I distinguish between 3 types. Vernier, dial and digital.

    ad 1. The good verniers aren't in fact cheaper than digital.
    ad 2. They most definitely aren't easier to read than dial or digital.
    ad 3. True but only if they are handled with care.
    ad 4. Only digital calipers require a battery. I can only hope the economy isn't so tight a $1 to $2 battery is considered expensive. To me the fact that most digital calipers can switch between metric and inches or zero by pressing a button makes them worth their weight in gold.

    Not mentioned but vernier calipers are not manufactured to the same accuracy standard as dial and digital so they are in fact less accurate.

    I'm old enough to remember a time when digital calipers didn't exist. Neither did smart phones or computers. 50 + years ago a black and white 17" TV cost more than a 50" colour one does today. Times have changed.

    Gordon,
    Calipers and types are not relevant in this thread.
    We all know it's your passion but you may be running the train off the track. Let it go, opinions will vary and the whole point of the net is let personal thinking fly.
    Even if you think or have proof of your concept you have to allow for thinking outside of your box. You are sometimes too quick on the trigger and I do this also.

    Don will have to pick a new mod.
    Maybe this does not need to be a QC or metrology person. It was nice to have one in the past but MichaelP makes a great point.

    Dualkit,
    We all get insulted here time to time and thorns in our side.
    That should not be decider.
    Many times I have been so upset that I say "I will not post or visit this board again".
    Yet like the augment with the wife or disagreement with coworkers time heals and you realize that we all have differing points we work from.
    Bob

    Basically a mod does one thing, moderate the content. Of course it's a big plus (not the spindle) to have knowledge on the subject.

    Bob, if you backtrack you'll see how fast this thread went off base.

    What you call "passion" I prefer to call inside knowledge as I get to try many hand held measuring tools frequently and as good as all the latest versions. As to "thinking outside the box" I've found that many Americans have had the same measuring equipment for years and that's probably often due to the fact that many are expected to have their own tools with them to work.

    Would I be a good moderator? Not my call but metrology has my interest. I certainly wouldn't be a Leigh clone and he was knowledgeable about many things. Where we tended to disagree most was he was more theoretically minded while I'd describe myself as more practical.

    Anyway not so important as what is required from a moderator in this particular sub forum is someone who knows a bit about metrology. At least enough to weed out non relevant or misleading posts. If we give Milicron time I'm sure he'll get around to figuring something out.

    Gordon

    Why would Anyone want to be a Moderator ?
    Sounds like another job to do to me, and unpaid at that.

    So, anyone who wants the job is disqualified from the job. Sort of like political office.

    Some of you are making it easy for Milicron to know who to avoid.
