Nice! – 0~25 mm Outside Micrometer (Precision 0.01mm) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
I am not an expert but: Seems accurate, Nice price (those sell for at least 10€ in shops in Greece and are from china as well), I like the quality overall, Comes with nice packaging and calibration wrench
Cons:
At the first uses it made a very faint scratching sound while spinning but this mostly went away after about file all the ways down and up spins. Maybe it was just the initial lubrication* that was needed so probably it was just natural.
Other:
*It comes with plenty of lubricant applied on the outside of the spindle. I didn't wiped that out but instead I spined it so the spindle would go all the way down. That way the lubricant went inside the instrument where it should be. While the spindle was inside I wiped the lubricant that remained on the top of it.
Bottomline:
I measured a piece of paper to be 100µm and a human hair to be 40µm. I bought it to measure wire thickness and at this price it seems a pretty good tool.
