There are quite a lot of them, some where done by members of this forum.
I am using the attached ( I found them on one website which does not exist any more), the programsa are useful for all kind of readouts / markings. including linear, verniers etc.


Also, see here:

And, search the forum for "setting circles"

I wish I had seen this before. I had to calculate my own vernier and draw it in cad. Now if any one want a vernier for a 200 diameter base.....
