    I don't know if it's still the case but Insize (Chinese) were very unpopular with other manufacturers because they used "dumping prices" to get into markets. I've seen Insize often at exhibitions but...

    Some prefer one type, others another. With "needle" I assume you mean dial caliper. Has anyone got a dial caliper over 300mm/12"?

    An advantage perhaps often overlooked is that with almost all...

    "Prefer" is when you try alternatives. I'm not sure if you're being stupid or provocative or stupidly provocative.

    I doubt if you've ever made a thread much less measured one.

    Were you nicer when drunk?

    I only sell calipers when a customer asks for them. It's up to the customer what make of digital caliper they want.

    Find a cheap caliper on my website.

    Most places and countries you aren't allowed to move around much at present so not much need for a car. About the only planes I see in the sky these days are gliders and small private planes. Some...

    It's surprising (or is it?) how countries tackle the corona virus. Some seem to do better than others but is anyone doing it right?

    Measuring threads with 3 wires

    There are many that use the 3 wire method for measuring external thread pitch diameter. Many seem to make it more complicated than I think it can be. One of the reasons it’s a PITA is that most...

    I did get your point but we don't see it the same way. When I buy something what I'm looking for is good quality and a sensible price and where it is made has a lower priority.

    I doubt is if the...

    Globalism isn't "just" cheap labour. It is used by some to get cheap but with other things then it's because some countries make things better than others.

    Years ago I was in Paris and was taken...

    Most of what I sell is to companies outside my own country and in as good as all continents. I sell to some large international companies and they usually require that I fill out papers to become an...

    His contact with me was "seeing a thread"? I don't believe I've ever seen anything Kretz has ever posted.

    Kretz, you're making Don Quixote look intelligent.

    What does a Mitutoyo Digimatic cost in the USA compared to for example a Sylvac or Tesa?

    As sold by a reputable dealer.

    I hate to break the news but as good as all digital calipers are now made in China. The top brand names do monitor what gets made for them. Even a good bit of Mitutoyo electronics get made in China...

    LOL I regard it a "follow" thing the same as sheep and lemmings. They do what they do and don't know why.

    It obviously doesn't take much to get some upset and even less to keep them busy.

    That thread could never hope to be other than political. This thread will go the same way whether you like it or not and whether you want it or not.

    What's your problem? I gave the answer and the correct formula many posts ago.

    Are you sure you're readng my posts? Maybe time for new glasses or improving your reading ability?
