Among the best precision calipers available, the William Ng style decimal caliper
5/5

After a second or two, I realized this is a decimal caliper, not a fractional one. However, I found that using this instead of my digital caliper is much easier (and more accurate). There is the occasional issue with the battery falling out of the digital, but the analog measurement requires no battery and is more straightforward to read. Though I still use my digital when I need to measure in mm or in actual fractional measurements, I have become proficient at As an example Between 1 and 2 inches long, and between 7 and 8 tenths of an inch on the rod, with the dial pointing accurately to 50, you will be exactly 1 3/4 inches long The 75th). For 51, 52, etc. , there are, of course, delineations A 751,1 number. The is found in 752), where A great deal of accuracy is inherent in the . 001" accuracy. The reason I bought this is that it resembles the caliper used by William Ng, who I think is one of the best woodworkers/instructors you can find on YouTube due to his no-nonsense (yet hilarious) teaching style. His response would probably be, "It may not be as expensive as mine, but it still works just as well all the same. ".

This is acceptable
3/5

Not very often. As a one-off purchase, I bought these I have tested the "D" pair and they are acceptable, but not very reliable. The air has tiny bits of metal (? If I got a re-manufactured pair, it is entirely possible I got one that was used The new one was manufactured so cheaply that it was simply not very good. Despite the low calibers, you can get a good deal for a low price. It's true you might expect no surprises in price from the review of quality, but sometimes you can come out on top. I don't need more than that for what I'm going to use - I have "001" of my more expensive pair. It won't get worse if it doesn't.

Those pictures are different from the ones in real life
3/5

A caliper with a plastic thumbwheel mount should never be purchased. As soon as the plastic is broken, it breaks. was under the impression the picture showed a metal mount, but I bought two calipers and they are both I don't have to worry about replacing my old caliper's metal thumbwheel mount as I can swap it out.

I am very pleased with the Buying this was a fantastic decision
5/5

It's really better than the digital readout I was planning on getting, since I didn't want to spend more money on it. Thanks to the rack and pinion, it will be more accurate, and it is constructed with high-quality materials. Please measure, if you need to. When the job code is "001", then this is the best tool for the job.

Woodworking is what I do with it
5/5

As a machinist, I used to work when I was in my 20s. As a hobby, I do woodworking now that I am in my late 50s. While this may not be suitable for use in a machine shop, for my woodworking projects with my grandson it MORE than meets the needs. A reasonable price for what I need at the moment.

On a budget, this caliper is great all-around
4/5

For the money, this is a darn good dial caliper for standard shop use. It is not a Mitutoyo or Starrett, nor is it a Browne and Sharpe. This one gets knocked over and the jaws hurt if it falls Despite what many people believe, the world does not end. Another one should be ordered.

I would say that it doesn't match the description at all
3/5

There is a score of 0 for the product description. A score of 001 over 6 is a good score. The number is probably closer to 0 than 1. Over 1 octamer will equal 5 over 005" There is "0". For use where precise measurements are needed, it is unsuitable. Using $20 calipers for precision machining is obviously not a good idea. I don't think you will have any problems if you're working on something else.

It is accurate
5/5

For the past 30 years, I've worked as a machinist. It takes ten or so years for the brakes to wear out. Working with an analog caliper still appeals to me. A few Mitutoyo digital calipers are in my possession. When I work in millimeters, this comes in handy. There are two calipers that I can compare to You've hit the nail on the head. Initially, it takes a bit of pressure, but it will loosen up with time. There's no such thing as shockproof technology, as they all claim. Make sure they don't fall.
