I need to buy a new.........
« on: January 12, 2014, 04:07:15 pm »
pair of digital calipers. Would like them to read in thousandths, mm and fractional! Thousandths and mm at a mnimum, no Chinese 'Home Cheapo' crap. Have been using a pair I got who knows where. I am tired of messing around with the to get an accurate measurement.

Open to any and all recommendations, not really too concerned about the $!

Thank you in advance!

If you take notice of resolution of these things, the Mitutoyo has a 1/2 thousandth's resolution and something like a Fowler or the one from Harbor Freight has a 1 thousandth resolution.

Actually, I did notice that in the specs before I ordered it. Thanks for the pointer.
