15% or more off select Mitutoyo tools. I saw several that appeared to have a much larger discount. Good luck!

Is there a coupon code or something? amazon.com/dp/B006ZCI59A is listed as part of the promo, though it doesn't seem to be a very slick deal given that it shows as $84, which isn't even close to the CCC low of $69.

No coupon code that I am aware of at the moment.

I had a pretty nice set of mitutoyo's walked off with! From my home garage...

I really want another set of nice calipers!

Can anyone recommend a specific set?

I really want a position memory, auto off, and roller, and any other important functional features people think make them good day to day calipers.

I purchased a inexpensive set a few years ago as replacements that donee not have position memory a roller or auto off, and I really don't like them anywhere nearly as much as my original set.

If you are a professional, there is none better.

For the rest, what's 1 or 2 mm off? laugh out loud

Mitutoyo is the gold standard for this stuff. I own some. But, its hard to justify if you are a casual user when you can get this at harbor freight or walmart for 5x less. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Perfor.../196564475

If you're making a backyard space rocket then yes, you'll want the Mitsutoyo. Or you like quality Japanese measuring instrument. I have the same one and it's accurate but...I also don't make rockets.

If you're doing things around the house and don't need a 0.0005" (0.01 mm) precision then you won't even notice a difference between a cheap Chinese $10 caliper versus this in terms of everyday measurements. I only have the Mitsutoyo as I got it cheap used. If this one breaks I'm going with a cheap $10 one. For woodworking I don't even look for more than 0.1 mm for accuracy (0.004" or so).

If you want a decent caliper that can be calibrated at home (for professionals, you want to calibrate it once a year at least even if you have Mitsutoyo or Starrett...that's what we do at our job), then get something like iGaging: https://www.amazon.com/iGaging-ABSOLUTE-Digital-Electronic-Caliper/dp/B00INL0BTS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&... [amazon.com]

This is the cheapest 8" Mitutoyo caliper. Sold and ship by Amazon. Normally, it ranges from $140+ and up. Now it is only $100. I got one when it was $140, and I thought that was cheap. Now, I got a second one. Both are verified with Mitutoyo for authenticity.

You don't get .0005 precision with calipers. Their website spec sheet (Mitutoyo's) says .0005 (half thou.) resolution on the readout, but accuracy is +-.001, +-.0015, and +-.002, depending on the model. Some other brand are up to +-.005 as for accuracy. That said, I've had Mitutoyo, Brown & Sharp, Etalon (Swiss, now owned by Brown & Sharp/Tesa/Interrapid) and Starrett. All are decent, you get what you pay for. My neighbor gave me a set of Harbor Freight, pure junk. I use them for scribing lines on moving shafts in my lathe. I estimate I use my calipers maybe 100-150 times/day (machinist). If I need to get closer than maybe +-.004 or .005, I'll use a micrometer, and/or gage blocks and an indicator. I had a guy that said he was a gunsmith, and could hit .0002. with his Cheesy calipers. No way, he's BSing his customers. I've got 6 inch, 8 inch and 12 inch Mitutoyo digital calipers, a set of Brown & Sharp dials, some Chinese 6 inch dials that someone left on my machine, and the HF gift calipers. The 12 inch Mitutoyo get used the most.
