Unexpansive measuring instrumend – 150mm Plastic Sliding Caliper Reviews

Cheap! Made of plastic. Almost no scratch danger (see cons.)
There is still some metal used, so there is a risk to scratch sensitive objects while measuring. I don' know how force resistant the calliper is, but I guess it could be simply damaged, when applied to much load. It could be more cheaper on dx.
A vernier scale would be nice. (I don't know how complicated it is to add some). This would be a great additional feature
I use for measuring parts on my bike. Since the the calliper is cheap I don't have any problems scratching it or making it dirty.
