Good caliper – 100mm Stainless Steel Digital Caliper (in/mm LCD) Reviews

Pros:
A great little caliper to use, it is able to measure up to 100 mm. Not only this, but it also features the ability to switch from metric (mm) to Imperial (inches), which can be helpful at times. It also comes with an additional battery, so that is also another benefit.
Cons:
The build quality is solid, but it can be a little stiff to move the caliper. A little silicone grease/spray should loosen it up, but I have not had the time to try this yet. The caliper also does not feature an automatic off feature, which means that you will need to remember to switch off the caliper when you are done using it; if you forget, it will drain the battery.
Other:
It is the smaller version of sku.2306 (which measures up to 150 mm). It also has a set screw at the top to prevent the caliper from sliding around once you take a measurement, which can be handy and useful.
Bottomline:
Get this caliper if you have a need to measure small things. If you have a need to measure slightly larger things (up to 150 mm), sku.2306 might be the best way to go. For even smaller measurements, sku.10422 (a micrometer) may be the way to go.
