2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Charles Manning on December 7, 2013
I own these calipers and they are definitely not 1:1.618. The smaller one I have is 1:2, the medium is 1:1.5, and the larger is 1:1.56. Obviously the larger the first number the more noticeably less accurate the second. Point being the quality control is all over the place and there's no way of knowing what you're going to get.

So while they may make neat conversation pieces when visitors see them hanging on your studio wall, that's about the limit of them.

I don't have the set of 3, but I was given the medium caliper as a gift, and I love it. I'm surprised to read the review that said theirs was not accurate, because these are laser cut by a machine, then hand finished and assembled, so there shouldn't be a whole lot of room for variation. Mine is spot on as far as accuracy. The tips are about 1mm wide, so it is a little more difficult on smaller measurements when more of the tip contacts the surface, but as you open them up, you notice that it is the edges of those points which are important -(the inside edges of the two widest points, and on the side of the middle point closer to the larger measurement). It's difficult to explain without demonstrating, but regardless, mine are very accurate and I would love to have the larger pair as well (and a monster pair if I could afford them).

All kidding aside the calipers are very well made and extremely helpful. I only wish the intermediate size was a bit bigger.
