It’s one of the first tools that come to mind when you ask a machinist to name a measuring tool and the caliper is normally the most important tool in their toolbox. A recent Top 5 Digital Calipers for Machinists article put together and published by Practical Machinist have given the crown to the worthy winner which is the Mitutoyo 500-196-30 Absolute AOS Digimatic Caliper.
The Japanese-made Mitutoyo AOS Digitmatic Caliper is the best in class when it comes to precision metrology hand tools. It’s equipped with standard outside and inside jaws, made from hardened stainless steel construction and has ABSOLUTE System scale for error-free, high-speed measurements. The ZERO/ABS button allows the display to be Zero-Set at any slider position along the scale for comparison measurements. This button also allows return to the absolute (ABS) mode for displaying the true position.
