I know, I know, a Mitutoyo Micrometer and Caliper set for US $60, shipping included, can’t be true. Chinese tools aren’t so bad, but these Mitutoyo chinese counterfeits are a joke.The mic doesn’t even look like the real one, and the caliper is the typical chinese cheap caliper (well, a little bit better may be, but not a Mitutoyo). The mic is usable, but I think the caliper needs some tweaking to make it a worth tool. The seller, jingshengyang2088, has a 99% positive feedback. Lesson learned.
Hi, I have been disappointed by the Chinese stuff too, sent one order back it was so bad.
I have had outstanding luck going to Estate sales (we have a lot in Metro Detroit) you have to have be patient but the better deals are out there.
Good luck, nice blog, I have my sherline adventures on Blogger.
You are right, used tools are the best deal… my best tools are second hand (this tools aren’t for me btw). I’ve check your blog… you had done a lot of awesome works! I will add a link to your blog if you don’t mind. Have a nice day!
