I needed to measure the inside walls of a vessel which had varying thickness so I designed these claws to fit to my vernier calipers to do the job. Obviously, these are a perfect fit for MY calipers. If yours are different they won't fit but if yours look similar, it might be worth a try at just under 1 hour print time for both claws. Or just print one claw and try it.

They are not a mirror image of each other i.e. the dimensions are slightly different between the left and right hand claw.
