Ignore the last post. I couldn't get the pics to show up and the time limit for modification expired. What's up with that?

Anyway, here's another attempt. The pics show the caliper holder base that obviously mounts to the bed and the slider mount for the caliper that mounts in the spindle.  I made this this past weekend and I think it's woriking like I designed it.  I have no clue as to what a "Speciialized Tool" is supposed to look like. The base is simply squared off with an engineering square (Groz) and bolted to the bed. Therefore, the slots were milled perpendicular to the bottom surface to ensure when I move the axis, it moves parallel to the bed.  The sliding holder portion is also slotted and mounts in the spindle.

It's made out of 3/4" 6061 T6 Aluminum.





Criticism is okay, I've got broad sholders, so tell me what you think, please.
