Great tool! – Digital 150mm Caliper Reviews

posted by citrus on 06/04/2007

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
I have this exact caliper from somewhere else... It's well built, sturdy stainless steel, doesn't feel cheap. You can measure the inner (using top clamp) or outer diameter (bottom clamp) of anything. I think the small long piece that goes out on the side can also be used to measure things like the depth of a tube.
Cons:
Accuracy is ~0.02mm within 100mm and ~0.03mm outside of that, so it is a little (very little) off at times. If you go from closed/zero to open and back to closed again, there are times that it may be +/- 0.01mm or a weird -0.00mm and you have to hit the zero button.
Other:
Random fact... My thumb's finger nail is 0.51mm or 0.020" thick. :)
Bottomline:
Great for hobbyists.
