Can anyone recommend any?
Sounds like a simple thing but I'm struggling to measure the thickness of the base of bowls :rolleyes:

I just use those figure 8 callipers, work well and no battery required. Phil

You can just use ordinary calipers together with 2 short lengths of dowels or similar objects. Measure the first time the thickness of the dowels and bowl together and the 2nd time the dowels alone. The difference will be the thickness of the bowl

I like the Wood Working Solutions callipers the most: https://store.youturn.tv/collections/chisels-for-turning/products/woodfast-bowl-callipers
