So happy that I finally bought the digital version!
This is one of those tools that I didn't buy for a long time because of the expense. Now that I have it, I keep it with my go-to tools and use it WAY more often than I ever used my old brass caliper. Even after taking a Sharpie to the 5/10/15 marks on the brass tool, it made me crazy to use them. After I got this digital version and checked some measurements I�d taken before, I was amazed at how many mistakes I�d made in my readings. They just take one button battery that I always find at any larger battery display (compatible with Energizer 357/303). When mine finally needed a new battery, I was surprised that I had a 3-pack at home already. It's the same standard button that goes into the laser-pointer that I use to drive my cat crazy. The display is very easy to read � no need to juggle a magnifying glass along with it to read the numbers. The display is approx. �� x 1-1/2�, and measures items from 1mm � 120mm (4.725�). I love it!
VERY HANDY TOOL AND EASY TO USE
This digital caliper is so handy to have plus it's very easy to use. I'm so glad I bought a digital one; you don't have to worry about trying to hold the item and read a ruler. I find it odd that no beads are exactly a certain size like 8 or 10. They always seem to be 8.17 or 10.21. With this tool you can quickly find out the exact size bead you're working with.
