from You get what you paid forAt it's super low price I didn't expect very high quality and I was right. I have to give Parts Express customer service a big thumbs up though - the first one I received had the packaging cable ties already cut open and was missing the locking knob. The customer service promptly sent a free replacement. And guess what? The replacement was missing one of the two set screws. But since I got two now I retrieved on set screw from the first one and installed it on the second.The set screws can't be too tight otherwise the brass piece would scratch the aluminum - guess how I found out about that! But they can't be too loose either, otherwise the sliding head would rock/wobble and give wrong measurements. Not a good design but that's what you get for under 10 bucks.The 1/128 differential graduation is a joke. I would guess the best this thing could do is 1/32 if not coarser.Bottom line if you only need a quick and rough measurement then this is a tool to get. Don't expect super precise measurement from it.

from quick and easy to readI have to say I have not used it much, but it would seem to have the features to measure large items quickly.The operation is simple and the build quality is equal or better than what I expected.The duribility is ok for in shop use , I have mine hanging around with large squares on a pegboard. To take it on site, you would probably need to offer protection.I only gave it 3 stars on performance, as I have not used it that much.I showed it to a friend, who builds his own speakers, but I doubt he will buy one when he can use mine.
