I want to lay out 1 mm divisions along a curved line. Shouldn't be a big deal. Pick a starting point, set your dividers to 1 mm and march your way around the line. I've got digital calipers, spring dividers and a drafting compass with points in both legs. The problem is that the spring calipers and the drafting compass flex all over the place and make it difficult to keep things accurate. The digital calipers are nice because you can set the dimension easily and they don't flex. The problem is the jaws are so big you can't scribe accurately. Has anybody modified a digital caliper to scribe properly? Are there attachments to do this? How about some decent spring dividers that don't flex all over the place?
