Lafayette Calipers

The original Lafayette Skinfold Caliper ( #1127A) has been used widely. This caliper was known for accuracy and durable, and can still be found in many science laboratories. This caliper has an adjustable zero-point which allows you to reset the pointer back to zero. It was designed with the assistance of Dr. Andrew Jackson, co-author of the widely used Jackson-Pollock skinfold formulas. It appears to be not available anymore, with Lafayette now producing a new modern lightweight design.
