caliper measuring external dimension

Measuring external dimensions

The first step to doing good work is always ensuring a clean and organized workstation as well as clean equipment. Most external dimensions can be measured using the external jaws. Once you’ve placed an object between the jaws, use your thumb to move the head as close to the top of the object as possible.

digital caliper lcd display

Large LCD display

Measurement results are provided on a large LCD display to provide you with large, easy to read numerals and prevent eyestrain.

caliper measuring internal dimensions

Measuring internal dimensions

The internal measurement of the object is also very easy to achieve. Simply place the internal jaws inside the dimensions to be measured, and open them up until the internal jaws are touching the sides of the object. View the LCD display to read the measurement.

vernier digital caliper

Inches, millimeters, fractions

Easily switch between measurement readings based on your needs. With the simple touch of a button you can view your results in inches, millimeters, or inch fractions.

Specifications

With a maximum measuring speed of 60 inch per second, it’s hard to go wrong with this high-accuracy digital caliper. Featuring jaws for measuring external dimensions, internal dimensions, and depth measurements, this is the way to go for all your small-scale measurement needs. Measurement is made available in inches, millimeters, and inch fractions to provide you with whichever type of measurement reading you require. The thumb roller makes it easy to slide and stop for accurate measurements, while the clamp screw is there to tighten the slider in whichever position you’d like. The 'reset to zero' button makes it possible to measure relative scales from several positions and angles for more dynamic measurement.

Troubleshooting + maintenance

Troubleshooting

There are a few important things to keep in mind about your digital caliper in case of a malfunction. If the LCD display keeps flashing, this is one way of knowing that the battery needs to be replaced. There are other telltale signs that the battery needs to replaced, such as when the LCD display becomes dim or there is nothing visible on the LCD display at all. Simply remove the battery compartment to replace the battery.

Maintenance

A digital caliper needs to be maintained just as any other electronic tool would. One great way to keep the digital caliper safe and operational is to keep it away from liquids. If any liquid is allowed to enter the caliper’s electronic components, it could cause permanent damage, leading to malfunction and inaccurate measurements readings. Take care of your digital caliper by cleaning the face with clean, dry, and lint free cloth. When needed, lubricate the body with a few drops of clock oil. Always keep all parts clean and dry to avoid deterioration.

I compared the Capri Platinum to 6 other digital calipers in this Video RoundUp.
(Video Size and Quality was reduced to meet Amazons limits, Watch the full video on my YouTube GadgetClass channel)

Summary:
Spend $5 more and get the iGaging EZCal which was the best digital caliper in the $30 and under group.
iGaging IP54 Electronic Digital Caliper 0-6" Display Inch/Metric/Fractions Stainless Steel Body

The Capri Platinum tries to stand out with it's metal case and fractional measurement capability but falls short on accuracy and there is a gap between the measuring jaws which renders all internal measurements useless.

Cons:
~ There is a gap between the internal measuring jaws which makes all internal measurements inaccurate. Watch my Youtube video showing this gap visually.
~ While the average accuracy across the entire data set was better than that of the Carrera and the Neiko, it is just barely within the rated accuracy of .0015"
~ The caliper I received would not maintain zero. This is a quality control problem.
~ Heavy Cast Metal Case makes for an un-balanced feel. The case makes the caliper much heavier than it needs to be.
~ 1st Battery was weak upon arrival, second battery just barely made it through testing

Pros:
~ It did score better than the Neiko?

Watch the full video series to make an informed buying decision.

I have been using digital calipers for about 6 months now on a daily basis for a laser operator job making car parts. After using a set of cheap, plastic-framed calipers for most of this time, these are a wonderful upgrade.

I have seen several user review stating that this set is "cheap." It simply is not cheap. These calipers are durable and well-made.

To clear some things up regarding other user reviews: Some people claim the display is too light. This is because they are using an old battery, since these calipers automatically turn on when you open them at all. Due to shipping etc. they may have turned on and off many times and the battery may have drained a bit, so just replace the battery and the display will be perfect. Simple fix. I have also read several reviews stating that it loses its' zero point quickly. This also is misleading, as it only looses .001 of a millimeter if anything, which is hardly a reason to give these calipers a low rating (they all do that to some extent, otherwise the button to zero it out wouldn't exist...)

This caliper set is absolutely wonderful and WELL-worth the price. If you are looking for a good deal and a quality product on calipers, your search ends here.

I will admit that I have not changed the battery yet nor have I had to use the screwdriver that comes with it (for the same reason) so I cannot comment on claims that the screws strip easily or any other related issues, but I would assume that being careful with your tools is a VERY simple fix to any of these concerns.

In conclusion: relatively cheap, yet well-made set of well-made and durable calipers.

The older I get, the lazier I get. I got this caliper for the one button conversion to metric. As soon as it arrived, I checked it against a set of precision 1-2-3 blocks that I know to be true. This caliper was spot on. Fortunately, it comes with two batteries as the one installed in the tool was DOA. A good tool at a good price.

I recently bought a caliper for 11.50 of Ebay that was machined way to rough to be accurate with in 3 thousandths. This one for maybe 7.00 more feels much better quality even though it seems to be made the same, just better machining and possible better electronic components. The display is a little different then the other calipers I'm use to but its nothing bad just something to get use to and the fractional capability is surprisingly helpful and figuring out bolt sizes. Overall I would buy it again.

I had the problem with the low light LED display the first time I turned it on. I thought dam this sucks I can barely read it. I looked for a button to change the display nothing, read the manual nothing. So I said well change the battery see if that does anything.

Soon as I did that boom bright bold text easy to read, and I could read it from every angle not like before at all. The LED Screen seemed about 10 times brighter with the second battery. If your LED screen is not bright change your battery. I assure you with a fresh battery the LED screen is wonderful and very bright with big bold letters, and it doesn't require it to be turned at the right angle to see.
