Measuring the thickness of your brake discs has never been easier thanks to these two measuring tools we stock, the 60mm Vernier Brake Disc Caliper & 50mm (2") Digital Thickness Calipers. These two precision measuring tools are practical to use and give accurate readings when you need them most.

With the Digital Thickness Caliper, the sprung loaded jaws help to centre the contact pads, to ensure an accurate reading every time. The 9mm diameter 2mm thick pads on the jaws of the Caliper allow the measurement to be taken even when the unworn edge of the brake disc protrudes, the Caliper pads ensure that the Caliper measures square at 90 Degrees to the surface of the disk. The easy to read LCD display ensures measurements can be taken instantly with a resolution of 0.01mm (0.0005inch).

The Vernier Brake Disc Caliper can be locked into the measuring position and removed, you can then read away from the disc. The fixed stop rod allows you to slide the jaws to the measurement position and read the disc thickness from the Vernier scale.

We recently said goodbye to a long-serving employee of The Allendale Group, Andrew Brand, as he becomes our first retired employee. Andrew has been part of the team as our Machine-DRO Technical Product Specialist for 7 years and will be greatly missed by our team. Andrew was very well liked by all staff and customers alike, and his wealth of Engineering experience helped the Machine DRO range to become the success it is today.

Andrew’s retirement is our loss, but a well-deserved respite for him and we hope he enjoys his retirement, as well as some retirement gifts from the company. Andrew is planning to write a book and work on restoring a dolls house during in retirement – so we may well hear from him as a customer in the future!

As a business, we are always looking to develop our employees in all areas of the business. Recently, we have hired Beth who has become our first apprentice and has joined the Allendale Group as a Business Administrator Apprentice, as our Admin team continues to grow.

Beth studied English, Art and Film Studies at A-level and was unsure on what career path to take once her A-levels were finished and believed that an apprenticeship was the best route to take when it comes to career development whilst earning money. As Beth hasn’t had much working experience apart from working full time at Wetherspoons, it was hard to find a job as many companies required you to have experience, whereas apprenticeships are a good platform for those without much experience. After applying through Hertfordshire Regional College, Beth found our apprenticeship position online and thought it would be the perfect fit for her and liked the idea of progressing through the admin department.

Being creative as well as many other skills, we believe Beth was the perfect candidate and we wish Beth all the best as she joins a friendly and ambition business. Welcome to the team, Beth!
