Good morning all!



I'm looking for an electronic caliper and would like some suggestions. I see various prices for a 6" model from $20.00 to $80.00.



What do yall use?



Thanks.



Steve

I received a very nice Tesa (Swiss Made!!!) that goes here for less than 100 francs (about 80$). Don't know if you find them in the US.



Adress is www.tesabs.ch

mitotuyo is very good

of course brown and sharpe and starret are the holy grail

anything in the middle to high range from MSC should be quite servicable

I still use the Starret manual ones that lock, great for QC when making small parts.

I use several , but I like my 20 buck one the best. It is easy to read for old eyes.

I have one that I ordered from Harbor Freight for about $20.00. They have had them on sale from time to time for less. It is very accurate and easy on batteries. They have a web site that you can order from.
