This review is for item number 68304. Don’t get this confused with item 47257 which looks similar. That one displays standard and metric in decimal only.
It’s a pretty simple tool so there isn’t a lot to say. I’ve been using it for a while and it works. The display is easy to read. It can display millimeters and inches in both fractional and decimal formats. I’ve tested it against objects of known size and the readings always came out correctly. I got mine on sale and added a 20% off coupon. I haven’t discovered any flaws in my device. It also comes in a handy plastic case to keep the sawdust out (with an extra battery).
It works and it’s affordable. See if you can find it on sale and add a coupon.
Update edit: I checked the manual and the website and the accuracy of the calipers is not specified. Also, the website says the calipers have a lifetime warranty on one part and 90 days on another part. My understanding is that Pittsburgh hand tools have a lifetime warranty. I don’t know whether this is considered a hand or power tool. If you did need them replaced I’d say you could use the website as leverage for getting them replaced for free.
