1. The digital caliper
2. A spare battery
3. A case
5. Certificate of calibration
6. Two copies of the MaxTool catalog
First of all, I'm impressed that they hand tested my caliper on 20 different test gauges and included a hand-written table of the amount of error in each coming to an average error of 0.02mm. By the way, the certificate is 0.0055 in. thick :)
Next, the instruction sheet shows a diagram of the tool and tells how to use each function.
There's a spare battery :)
The case holds the caliper and the spare battery. Also, the case is rock-hard plastic with foam padding on the inside.
The caliper itself is awesome. It measures in both inches and millimeters to a tolerance of 0.0005 in. or 0.01 mm. It is capable of being plugged into a computer (cable not included). It has faces for measuring outside diameter, inside diameter, depth and a step (or height). There are three buttons for toggling power, toggling SA and metric and zeroing (or tare).
This is a wonderful buy even if you don't need it. I say this because there will eventually be a time where you'll be doing something and realize that it's the proper tool.
When I decided to purchase this caliper I figured even if they were poorly made I would keep them as a backup. When I saw how badly they were made I decided to return them for a refund.
If, like the vast majority of people who have a casual need to measure the outer, inner or depth size of something occasionally … this is perfect. It is actually a truly astounding value in terms of build quality, materials and usability for the price. If you’ve never owned a caliper, you will probably find uses for it around the house that you never dreamt of. Almost overnight it has become one of the most useful tools I have.
I won’t go in to one word of detail about how this caliper “fails” compared to a $100 tool, or how for only a few dollars more another brand may have some miniscule advantage. At the time I bought this it was not only (by far) the cheapest digital caliper tool at Amazon but it was also their #1 seller. Duh.
The look and feel is one of precision. There are no loose, sloppy-fitting parts. The display is large, clear and easy to understand and turns on automatically as soon as you move the slider. The controls work as expected. The included case acceptably protects the tool when not in use. A pre-installed battery and another spare battery are included. The user instructions are adequate even for someone who never used a digital caliper previously.
I can’t possibly think of any reason I would ever need a caliper that is any more precise than this one, but if I did I would have known that before coming to this page and choosing this one. This is absolutely a 5-star bargain.
