    yeah he looked later and said it was 5/16 24. Turns out he didn't see it yet, the welder only said he gave his answer.

    yep, turns out the senior machinist didn't see it at the time, the welder just got a quick guess from him because he was busy. He looked at it by himself later and saw it was 5/16 24. My guess of...

    As I mentioned in the full thing, this is on them, not me. My opinion was already overrode by a senior machinist. He came to me today after reviewing it by himself and said it was 5/16 24. My guess...

    Maybe I should consider buying an older pair and refurbishing them.

    I think this is the right idea, though I'll still ask a superior's opinion. I'll tell the welder to order an M8x1 as well. Thankfully this is not an end-of-the-day job.

    EDIT: So i double checked...

    Advice for an odd case of stripped holes

    Solved: Senior machinist set it right, it was 5/16 24. The welder was way off guessing 1/4 24 and I was closer but still incorrect with M8x1.
    TLDR: crossthreaded hole on a french airplane wheel....

    I believe that's what I'll do, thank you! I still have these calipers and seeing as they're company bought, I know I'll make Etalon my choice when it's available to reasonably swap them out.

    It took me a long time to realize Etalon was a sub-brand of B&S. My only problem with them is that I really dislike thumbwheels, I'd have to alter the tool. But since I don't seem to have a lot of...

    I think what gets me is that it's been that way with that number for a long time. There's no updated number so it is a bit more tricky to track it other than when it was bought. Thanks for the answer!

    Brown & Sharpe, Hexagon, and "Swiss Made"

    TLDR: B&S calipers don't have swiss made on there anymore, trying to see if they've moved to China or somewhere to shave costs while still charging high. For those with pre-Hexagon/TESA calipers, how...
