I am looking into buying some nice 0-1" digital micrometers. I want digital because I find manual micrometers a pain. Yes I can do it, no I don't want to do it over and over again. Also, the ability to toggle between metric and imperial is worth it to me.
Given my recent positive first encounter with a fine mitutoyo product, I looked at their micrometer first. About 140 bucks for a new one. One person I know suggested Fowler as a more economical alternative. I can get the Fowler 0-1" micrometer for under 80 bucks. Does anybody have any experience with Fowler products? How is the quality?
