    I was in China 3 months ago. I've never seen so many electric cars (except for Norway) in my life. Apart from the fact that for the first 5 days my transport was a Tesla almost all others (including...

    The first post in this 6 year old thread. The highlights are mine.

    You got that out of what I posted in post #13? Where did I "recommend"?

    The key sentence is "How good it is will depend on what you use it for."

    Did you read post #10? That was helpful.

    Mitutoyo digital calipers

    This could look like an add for Mitutoyo from the title but it's curiosity on my part.

    Has anyone ever tried (I have tried both types) or bought either of these? They have been available for...

    Not what you're asking but I bought one (not Starrett) for about $10 in a local hardware store and it has all the "attachments". How good it is will depend on what you use it for. If I want "square"...

    I know you're trying to be helpful but it might help more if you mention where that subforum is and the name. I've an idea as to which one you mean but am far from certain.

    ad 1. With that logic then the depth rod on a caliper should be more accurate than it is.

    When you write "a couple of thou" are you comparing internal measurement with a caliper against a Diatest or similar?

    I suppose compared to CMMs they are "dirt cheap". I've found that the...
