Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have for HobbyistsI used this same caliper when I worked in an asphalt lab where it was thrown around and treated very rough and it never stopped working. The one I recently purchased from Parts-Express I handle with a bit more care, but even if I didn't I'd still be confident it'll last me quite a while. Measured several drill bits when I first got it and it was very precise. The only complaint I have is that it came with two batteries, one spare and one already installed, and the installed one was dead. The spare brought it to life and I've been using it without problems since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tool for a great price!A good general purpose measuring tool and the price is great. I've got about a dozen like this spread over the lab.Measures to thousandths, but I only use them to hundredths of a inch. Nice that they switch between metric (ten micron resolution) and inch (one thousandths resolution) without needing to re-zero; that makes working with mixed systems much easier.They send a new battery with them which is nice; I've had a couple come in with the installed battery dead.Very much worth adding to a tool set, but not quite good enough for machining work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Short life span.It worked great for awhile, but then the numbers started jumping all over the place, flashing. Tried three new batteries. It is currently unable to measure anything.I don't remember the exact purchase date, but I probably got less then two years before it failed.I did enjoy it very much when it worked, but I really dislike disposable products. I used it for measuring smaller speaker baskets, tire tread depth. It came in handy in many ways while it was working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality required tool.I once worked in a wooden funiture factory, runing wood molders. The finished pieces had to be cut, to preferct sizes, and shapes. I bought a caliper just like this one. It cost me around $80. It could not do any better than this one. If you are required to have a caliper, in your tool kit? This is the one to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap and....good!I own all types of calipers from Mitutoyo and Starrett to the Harbor Freight version of these. I recently bought one as I'd left mine at the office and needed some ASAP. Compared to nearly identical HF version, these aren't 'gritty' - meaning the action is smooth. Accuracy is fine for non-critical measurements. I always "check twice", even with the high end units - because you never can be too sure. Repeatability seems pretty good, though I haven't owned this set long enough to determine that. I have a NIST-traceable measurement standard and this measures within the specified tolerance. Very good performance for the money!!Mine had a dead battery/flashing display, as well - it's just the nature of the beast, I guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job!I really like the caliper, the only thing with my experience was a dead battery, in the tool. I thought it was broken, when I first tried to use it, because it wouldn't turn on. Needless to say, I tried the replacement battery that was included, and it started working. Other than that, I'm happy with this tool.
