Measuring thickness of HF's

Don in Denver
>Been trying to make some small vase-shaped HF's.(2-2 1/2" dia. x 5-7" height) I seem to go through the wall either when undercutting the rim down to the side or toward the bottom as it tapers down. I've tried using a bent coat hanger that I saw Bob Rosand use on his ornament video, but I can't seem to make one that will go through the 1/2" opening and still be able to give me an accurate reading on the walls etc. How are you all measuring in these situations?
