Cheap & Cheerful
The instructions say remove the battery if unused for a long time. Mine came with the battery installed. It was Flat. So was the spare. The website description now states supplied with one SR44 (as opposed to the two LR44 which came with mine) My one must be old stock. Otherwise apart from zeroing problems seems to work well but don't rely on just one reading. Measure more than once.
For it's price this is an OK calliper. However it's not sufficiently rigid and getting repeatable measurements and zero is almost impossible (without much effort).
Excellent value for money and it does what it says on the box! It is well made and measures in both inches and mm which is handy. The instructions are useful too as is the supplied spare battery. I like that you can measure depth with the calipers which has helped with some projects over the summer. Being digital it has really sped up the processing time compared to when I was using a similar analogue set of calipers.
Perfect for my wood turning hobby! Good and accurate, and very easy to use..
Great product, works like a charm!
Well presented, nice case and clear display. Metal finish quality is not very good and has a rough action, needs a fine stone rubbing over it. However for an inexpensive tool it does seem to measure quite accurately and mine is repeatable, it doesn't lose its zero like others have reported. The sticker on the back has some useful ISO Metric Screw data and Whitworth? Who uses Whitworth these days? Also the sticker was put on crooked which detracted a little from the overall presentation. perfectly OK for DIY / garage use I would say.
Terrible build quality, and unreliable. Turning the calipers on and sliding them in and out a few times then returning them to fully closed often results in readings so far from zero it's not funny. I'm returning mine at the earliest available opportunity.
This is perfect for quick, accurate measurements in my workshop now that my eyes are not what the used to be. Its well made and has a scale to cross check the read out. I probably wouldn't use this on a precise engineering project but I do use this every day for taking measurements quickly.
I know there is a stated tolerance in the description of this item but the one I bought seems to slip outside this at times, I have to keep checking it against a set of feeler gauges to make sure I have the right measurement.
Excellent value for the money! Does not quite do what the more expensive calipers will do in terms of maintaining zero but very good non the less.
