not what the package asy
I was disappointed when I found that both external calipers only had a resolution of .01 in. I can read a ruler way closer than that. The depth gauge is the only one with .0005 resolution as described on the package. I see the description above is accurate stating resolution of 1/100 inch. Also one of the batteries was dead. I'm keeping them since they were $20.00 on an in store special and they are not worthless.
I ordered these because I thought they would be handy in the shop and in the house ... and they will be, when I get new batteries. They were shipped with the batteries installed and they each worked ... once. There was no barrier to keep the batteries from discharging that you usually find in things shipped with the batteries installed. There were no instructions on the packaging showing how to open the battery case and it was not intuitive. I figured it out by process of elimination. I'm going to get new batteries and I fully expect they will do the jobs I have for them to do. It was only when I looked at the package, trying to find battery change information that I saw "made in China". Come on, Woodcraft, we expect more out of you.
Waste of Money
Batteries died on two of the calipers before I had a chance to use them and they don’t seem to be replaceable. Was using the third one today and the battery is almost dead.
Not as described - calipers only read to 2 decimal places
The calipers only go to 1/100th of an inch, 2 decimal places, not "with a resolution of 0.01mm/0.0005"." as noted in the description. The depth gage does match the description. While customer service was quick I wasn't happy with the only solution offered - return the product.
