And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Make sure you get the made in Japan ones.ReplyDelete
Get the manual one with a dial.ReplyDelete
Batteries have a nasty habit of being dead when you need them.
I have both.
The digital one takes (2) LR44 button batts.
I'm still using the dial ones that I bought back in 1975......Delete
The case pushes on the ON button.Delete
You have to store them with the battery removed
Love me the electronic one. And spare batteries are a must.Delete
But oh! The precision!
I have the cheaper series of Mitutoyo calipers that only ran about $100 about 25 years ago. My only complaint is the battery life. My Fowler has a much longer battery life. They are both quality calipers. The Fowler is on the reloading bench and the Mitutoyo is in my toolbox.ReplyDelete
Fowler is equally good, not overpriced, and not so often counterfeited. There's a lot of fake Mitutoyo out there.Delete
meh... eyeballing ain't good enuf for ya?ReplyDelete
I have used a lot of the Mitutoyo digital calipers over the years working in QA. Good stuff, but as stated above, battery life can be an issue. I would love to have one of the old dial calipers. For anything I would do at home, they are quite sufficient and don't need batteries. I have a Horror Freight cheap digital for things that don't require a lot of precision since it does both inch and metric without having to do the conversion myself. Both of my vehicles are Japanese.ReplyDelete
I wish I could afford Mitutoyo!ReplyDelete
