    GREAT tool for the

    I am legally blind (20/400) but am still trying my best to stay active & productive. This is a GREAT "Assistive Devicce". "Thousands of an inch" calipers don't do jack for me, either in the shop or at the jobsite. I use this little gem constantly for O.D.'s, I.D,'s, depths, thicknesses & many other, under 7", measurement questions. With another of my "assistive devises", I can "EASILY"read and/or make adjustments as small as 1/64th". I would not know about doing machining, but for wood working & general building maintenance, this tool is excellant. It is, I believe, finely made, but NOT "bullet proof" AND if you are careless enogh to drop it enough, "YOU DESERVE TO HAVE TO BUY YOURSELF A NEW ONE". I DID AND THEN I DID. Bottom line: IT IS WORTH THE DOLLAR!

    good quality

    accuract, easy to read. Bought this on sale for [$] bucks and am real happy with it. Didn't much care for the $7.50 in shipping.

    Not worth the price even on sale

    The dial does not have any knurling or grip-ability. Just a smooth dial. No wheel for finely sneaking up on measurement. These two basic things, plus the fact that the ring is so thin when you grab it, it flexes makes this a cheap tool way overpriced for the craftsmanship.

    I love it.

    I use it to make sure what I am working with are all the same thickness and width when it applies. I love the weight, it has good balance, and appears to be more accurate then others I have used. I would recomment this to friends.

    Great caliper

    I needed a new caliper that I can easily read, and this fits the bill nicely! It is easy to read and I am using it constantly. it replaced a digital caliper that I dropped and broke the display and I am very pleased with the dial read out.

    Every shop needs this

    can't beat it for the sale price, I think I paid just under $30 which seems pretty good... I've had this a little over 3 weeks and find myself pulling them out all the time.

    Worth every penny...

    This is as advertised. It's far easier to use than the plastic/digital one that I have...I don't need 128th's of an inch!

    Perfect for my needs

    Occasionally, as a professional structural engineer, we at our firm need to make very accurate measurements of beam flange or web thicknesses, cables, or other small structural elements. In the past, we used a vernier caliper and/or micrometer. Both were difficult to read and interpret in the field. This is the perfect tool for a job of this nature.
