Anyways, would the advantage of using a plastic dial caliper be the easiness of drilling it? My partner got a stainless steel one, and so we're not even gonna bother drilling. Wondering if a nice plastic one could be the solution to our problems...
The advantage is in the weight, although drilling followed by nut/bolt and epoxy sounds much better than just epoxy.
I think nut or bolt should be enough although it depends on the initial infrastructure. Accuracy is more important in terms of score, but speed is going to become increasingly important as the year goes on so sometimes weight should also be taken into account.
Depends on what you think "enough" is. If youre trying to get <2cm accuracy, I would advise adding a layer of epoxy because the smallest shifts that seem microscopic can have compounding effects and mess you up by a couple of cm's. Of course if this is not a concern to you, then you're right, epoxy isnt all that necessary
