This a good basic digital caliper that is useful for measuring the thickness of your stock so you can specify the correct cutting depth. It is also great for verifying dimensions when a tape measurer just won’t do. It is made of a composite material, not steel. This is a hobby grade digital caliper and should not be relied on for exactitude. The displayed resolution is to 0.1mm or 0.01″ and it is accurate to ± 0.1mm. If you don’t have a professional caliper, this is a great asset!
There are three buttons:
– Zero (to zero the measurement)
– mm/inch (to cycle between displaying millimeters and inches.
The measurement range is 0-155mm (0-6.10″)
The caliper uses an LR44 battery and comes with one spare.
