KBC supplies the tools; you supply the pocket protector. You might need two pocket protectors!

3. Do you measure up? With AMPG (Accurate Manufactured Products Group) Caliper Extender, you can measure up to 91” with your vernier, dial or electronic caliper. You don’t have to buy a big and expensive caliper to measure accurately and big.
