Some of our staff from Sales, Warehousing, Marketing and Purchasing took part in a team building exercise to create the tallest tower using only marshmallows and uncooked spaghetti. To make this activity even better, everyone took part on Christmas Jumper Day to build the Christmas spirit at the same time.

With Engineers in each mini team, there was a lot of skill and thought going in to this activity (although no one had any experience in building towers made out of marshmallows and spaghetti). We did however have a winning team which produced a tower measuring 649.13mm which was accurately measured by our 1000mm (40") Digital Height Gauge (click here to view product) and some towers unfortunately didn’t survive the 5 minute cut-off time. Our Product Specialists and Technical Engineers are experts in their field, however, not so much when it comes to building towers from marshmallows and spaghetti!

This is not your average Digital Caliper, in actual fact, this Machine-DRO Digital Caliper (Part No: ME-CAL-LO-1500) is 1.5m long and has been bought by our customer Kingspan in Australia, to measure their large panels which they design and manufacture.

Its large industrial capacity jaws help hold the workpiece firmly but still allowing a very precise resolution of 0.01mm (0.0005") and an accuracy of +/-0.14mm. This makes for the perfect measuring tool to accurately measure large parts with precision in mind. Constructed with high quality hardened stainless steel, this giant Digital Caliper can withhold knocks and minor scratches which may be caused in environments such as workshops and manufacturing assembly lines.

This Digital Caliper arrives in a large storage box which protects it from damage when transporting it from place to place, as well as a battery & instruction manual. To match with its size, it also includes a clear and easy to read display that can be set to zero in any position and has metric or imperial selectable functions.

Face Painting can be a messy activity, but we have helped Hayley's Face Painting & Glitter Tattoo's with a Flight Case (Part No: EN-AC-FG-C402) designed to keep their accessories and colourful sparkles in a safe and organised fashion.

To make their case extra special, they added some cool features to make it bespoke to their business. With the added internal cover which can be open and closed with velcro tabs, it acts as a protective layer and also as a small worktop to place paints and glitter when Face Painting is being done. As you can see from the pictures, Hayley's Face Painting & Glitter Tattoo's have really gone to town on making their new Flight Case reflect their business… which is to be VERY creative! We especially love the idea of the LED lights and there is lots of space to store the paints and mini jars of glitter.

This year, an estimated £7 billion is going to be spent during Black Friday & Cyber Monday in Britain alone. With this in mind, Black Friday and Cyber Monday has been very hectic but our brilliant staff throughout the departments have worked extra hard to get all orders placed and shipped in time for our customers estimated delivery times. Our warehouse staff have been working around the clock to push orders through to our couriers all weekend to get them delivered when promised, including some staff working an extra day on the weekend.

A very busy couple of weeks for everyone here and we’re planning for an even busier month ahead as we get ready for Christmas and some special offers which will be announced soon. Make sure you keep an eye out for our latest ‘merry’ Christmas offers.

In this video, our Product Specialist and Engineer show you how to calibrate your External Micrometer and achieve precise measurements for every project. External Micrometers are a popular tool for Engineers and it’s extremely important to get the Micrometer calibrated properly for accurate measurements, which is the reason for this video.

This brief but informative video can be seen here.
