Good Deal on Stainless Steel Digital Vernier Calipers, $12.39 w/ case & extra battery

My old manual calipers went missing a few months ago. I finally gave up looking and bought some new digital calipers today. I thought this deal was good enough to share. $12.39 (free shipping with Amazon Prime), and includes an extra battery and case. Regular price is $49.99, though I'd take that MSRP with a grain of salt. Accurate to within .01mm. I haven't tried them yet, but the reviews are solid.

The same calipers are sold under a huge variety of different names in lots of places. The Harbor Fright ( ;0) version is http://www.harborfreight.com/6-inch-...per-47257.html for example, and you can often get them as a freebie with another purchase. They're certainly fine for the price, and more than accurate enough for bike-related tasks.

Those are really a very good instrument. Mine's lasted many years of frequent use and works extremely well.
