    You can probably guess what my opinion is by the title of this thread.
    Can anyone list any situations where you would want to calibrate a steele rule?

    Yes.

    Depends on what you are doing with your steel rule, but if you are using for accept / reject or to make process adjustments the answer is yes and GR&R too.

    It’s a culture, it’s a thought process. Excluding steel rules is like excluding computer controlled measures.

    Insane. There is more inherent human variation in the reading/interpretation of a steel rule than there is due to any physical changes you will ever see in the rule itself.

    The previous poster is closer to the mark by raising GR&R. This is more relevant than calibration. GR&R will get to the real crux of the issue … is a steel rule really the method to use for the measurement problem you are addressing?
