I have to tell you, there are plenty of measuring instrument companies out there offering fractional reading digital calipers cheaper than this one. When I first got this in my hands at our monthly sales meeting, and experienced the ultra smooth movement on the slide, and the fact that it returns to zero every time, I was intrigued.
The guys at Insize approached our company about becoming a dealer. They brought in many measuring instruments, and passed them around the room. Every one I handled had ultra smooth movements, and always returned to zero whether it was digital, or dial reading. I asked the CEO is there was a fractional reading caliper, and he handed me the 1102-150. I went around measuring everything on my desk, in fraction, decimal, metric converting it back and forth from fractional to decimal to metric. It was extremely accurate.
The CEO was very excited also about the case. This case is designed to sit on the bench, and open with just one hand. It has rubber non-slip feet on the bottom, and a long clasp on the top along with a hinge and opens flawlessly. I’ve had mine a few weeks now, and have not returned to my trusty old Starrett fractional reading dial caliper. This one is much nicer! So nice, our company is now an Insize dealer!! These measuring instruments are flying off the shelves at work!!
