This high precision digital readout caliper has a very robust all stainless steel construction. Use for internal, external, step and depth measurements. Accuracy is 0.01mm(0.001") and maximum measuring distance 155mm(6"). Zero can be set at any point along the range, and the display is easily switched from a metric to an imperial reading. It has an auto shut-off feature and takes a standard SR44 battery (supplied). N.B. Philips 00 screwdriver required for battery compartment.

digital readout accuracy totally unreliableI've put up with these for around six months, taking the battery out and waiting a minute to recalibrate as per the instructions, but I still have to check every measurement so what's the point of paying for batteries? I'm going to send them back and try a different make.

good if youv'e got endless battery supply....I purchased a similar axcaliber vernier several years ago. I was pleased with the display and build quality but I had to replace the battery within approx. 4 months whilst it was hardly used. Fine, once is ok twice maybe iffy batteries but a third one just out of warranty made me suspicious, so I measured the consumption which was 0.2mA in the "off" state and "on" state, in effect turning it off just blanks the display. So it resides in a cupboard in pieces until a small enough switch can be found. I purchased the GemRed unit as its' replacement , however suspicions already aroused , measured this to find exactly the same problem, turning it off doesn't! My watch is mechanical/lcd and the battery lasts 4 to 5 years.

excellant piece of kitSturdy well built vernier that has a handy auto on so as soon as you move the caliper it comes on rather than having to press the "on/off" button. It also turns itself off after a few minutes like most of them do. It also has a larger display than my previous verniers. All in all I like it a lot and worth the money...
