Using Calipers to Measure Your Forklift Forks 

Fork Calipers – For a quick inspection of fork wear you can use fork calipers. This handy tool allows you to measure wear while forks are mounted on the lift truck.

How do they work? – There are two pair of points on the caliper jaws. The outer pair (A) sets the calipers to the original fork thickness using the vertical shank of the fork (point 1). When these points are positioned, the inner points (B) are automatically set to 90% of the original thickness. If the inner points (point 2) pass over the fork blade, you will know you have more than 10% wear.
