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

    I just bought an older starrett 12" combination square with a center head. The square head and the center head are in decent...

    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"...

    You've got too much time on your hands.

    As to why then because Mark Rand asked me to add it to this thread. He probably meant it to be added to what I'd just posted but I thought it good enough to...

    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.

    In the hope of a "friendly" discussion :)

    ad 1. With that logic then the depth rod on a caliper should be more accurate than it is.
    To me the main source of measurement inaccuracy of a caliper is...

    I like it but simple?

    Anything that gives discussions and needs definitions isn't what I call simple :cheers:

    This is mainly for barbter. I have 2 delete options.

    1. I can completely delete a post as if it had never been written.

    2. I can delete and save in case it's needed at some point in time as to...

    Accuracy is achieved by using something that is relevant to the dimension and tolerance being measured. Same as a car from getting you from A to B and back. All are made to do that but some cost a...

    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...

    My post wasn't directed at you. Just general. As you say, to house a bearing requires more accuracy than a caliper is capable of.

    This is a relatively old thread revived again. I suppose I'll never understand why calipers (and I personally prefer digital) seem to create so much difference of opinion.

    I can't think of a more...

    Not sure what you mean by "error". That type is mechanical and has a digital display. Still not uncommon. As I've posted earlier back in the day (before "real" digital) I bought several for those who...
