    Believe me, I am still weighing options here, but the VF2SS and the 560/DNM5700 aren't in the same class in terms of size. You'd have to compare the VF3SS as a fair comparison which adds $12k to the...

    I used similar LED's that were IP65 rated and they lasted about 6 months before they crapped out due to coolant intrusion. Would definitely go with IP66 or IP67.

    Broken Depth Rod on Calipers

    Hey all.

    Have some 40" calipers that had the depth rod break off. Couldn't tell you how it happened, but it did.

    Any way to repair this piece of equipment reliably?
