    Yeah, a 'vernier' is where you resolve two scales to pick out a reading, like a slide rule, or like a common micrometer handle.

    I wasn't allowed to play with the Mitotoyo; It wasn't mine, but I woulda tried.

    PS: I think my analytical scale shines vernier scales to be read in a window. Got a newer one too, somewhere.

Maybe they appear in an accessory catalog somewhere where I can glean the P/N? However, the straight, 3-hole brackets might be might be P/N 13314-36 (52543-36), 'Seat Bar Mounting Plate (2)', which appear to be shown in the buddy seat group. What do you think?
    Look in a Shovelhead era parts book.

    A dial vernier caliper does Tom. Easier to read with my old eyes to boot.

    You mean the vernier scale is on the dial, Pa?

    A dial on a dial with vernier scales that rotate and resolve to each other?

    That would make it twice as hard to read!

    PS: I just searched and found digital 'electronic' "vernier" calipers for sale!
    Not a vernier scale anywhere on them that I can see...
    PPS: My old POST bamboo slide rule from high school still hangs on the wall. I hated it, but it did make a vernier seem simple!
