This fractional dial caliper is made of stainless steel and comes in a plastic storage case. It features a 1-1/2-inch dial that is easy to read when taking outside, inside, depth, and step measurements. The dial face or bezel can be rotated to set zero anywhere on the scale and has a bezel clamp to lock the dial in place for making deviation measurements. The range per revolution is 1-inch, with an accuracy of +/- 0.001-inch, graduated in 0.010-inch on the inner ring, and 1/64-inch on the outer ring. It also has the fraction and decimal equivalents on the shaft.
It features a knurled thumb roller, positive lock, and precision ground jaws. The action is silky smooth; it is very well machined and will not disappoint. The needle always goes back to zero. It requires no batteries, and its dial is straightforward to read. It looks and feels like instruments costing much more, and it is just as accurate.

"Initially, I am very impressed with this I-Gaging fractional caliper. It seems accurate, and the reading on the dial matches the reading along the scale for all 6 inches. I find the other calipers I own are inconsistent, both the digital and analog versions. When I return to zero, it often does not come out to zero. The goalposts moved. This thing gives me a good level playing field. It feels good and sturdy in my hands and adds to my confidence when I take a measurement. Plus, the price is right."
