    I use a caliper to measure skin lesions in a medical office. A digital one is too big (not pocket friendly) and the precision would be over-killed. This caliper fit the job perfectly: small, light, double unit (inch/cm) and most of all very affordable.

    I did not realize this was plastic when I ordered it. To me this makes it kind of expensive. Plastic has many advantages – no corrosion, not easily bent when dropped, lubrication or protective oils are not required so I’m not too disappointed and for my limited amount of use durability is not a problem. Outside measurements are spot on. Inside measurements, however seem to be about 0.4 mm shy. I wish it had a shirt pocket clip.

    Accurate, easy on hands & tough fiberglass build!, April 21, 2013

    This review is from: General Tools 141ME Pocket Caliper (Tools & Home Improvement)

    Unlike some reviewers, I choose this model because it is fiberglass and not metal. I have a similar metal caliper from General Tools and it is thin, sharp, pokey, scratches delicate objects and is not pocket friendly (bloody fingertips if you’re careless). In contrast, the 141ME is thicker, has smooth and rounded corners, is gentle on objects and is pocket friendly. For my eyesight, it is accurate to within .5mm. According to the packaging, this caliper is fiberglass and the word plastic is not mentioned.

    While measuring an Arca plate I was surprised to find “Made in Switzerland” written in the ruler slot. Probably the reason it’s pricy is because it’s among the few items on Amazon not made in China!

    There is one gotcha: the silkscreened numbers near the thumb grip (the textured bump you push to expand the rule for measuring) are starting wear off after only two days of use. Other than a little finger sweat, I have no contact with solvents. If it continues to degrade I’ll return to amend this review.

    It’s a joy to use because I don’t have to worry about poking a finger or scratching a delicate piece. Just quickly measure and go about my work. It measures well and feels durable, so I’m a happy camper as long as I can read the numbers…
