Measuring Leather

Measurement tools are often an afterthought when compiling tools for a workshop, but they shouldn't be. A minute error in measurement is all it takes to ruin an entire project. Invest in quality measurement and layout tools, which will last longer and remain accurate for years to come.

Dial Thickness Gauge

The vast majority of leather is sold according to its area. The leather is placed through electronic measuring machines and its surface area is determined in square feet. The thickness is also important, and this is measured using a thickness gauge. Most thickness measurements are listed in either ounce per square foot(oz) or thickness in millimeters(mm). The weight or thickness is usually given as a range because the inherent variability of the material makes ensuring a precise thickness very difficult.
