Bargain!!!

Amazon have Mitutoyo calipers at a good price, so bought myself an early Christmas present.


#403

Nice one. We used to use a lot of Mitutoyo calipers at work, they always lasted well and were invariably found to be accurate when they were calibrated.


#404

Most of the measuring stuff we use at work is Mitutoyo,best made stuff we use.

I have a Moore & Wright one at home,feels a bit mickey mouse though.


#405

Me too :grin:

Old school, no digital readout

Why not proper mitutoyo verniers they are 1/2 the price of those digital abominations
I have mitutoyo verniers


#407

I have a decent larger set (Etalon) already. I wanted (a) a smaller set and (b) a set with a readout for convenience.


#408

Use these ones which are very good


#409

Could be worse. You could be getting excited about a cartridge. :grinning:


#410

Meh, I mostly use a phone. The Ltd sits on the shelf. :rofl:


#411

I’ll look after that for you, keep it exercised, ensure it doesn’t seize up through lack of use :+1:


#412

Lol. Mine’s been wallowing in its box for over 2 years now :grinning:


#413

Can I ask why people buy these moderately expensive baubles and then never use them ?


#414

In my case, the whole system is in storage. It’s not that I don’t want to play it, I can’t.


#415

Ah, I guess that’s because you’re still building the room around it ?


#416

Nearly. The hifi occupies 90% of the spare bedroom on the mezzanine. I’ve just had the 3 heaters delivered for the music room, so if I can get them running and the new lighting up, I can work on it through the winter.


#417

And all things considered that is how important it is.

Every now and again it’s just great to hear music no matter the tech

Tonight I’m enjoying the hi


#418

It would be finished now, but the complications with Lou’s health situation means that I’ve had a lot more on my plate than I expected. I do need to make a serious effort to finish it by the spring though, even if it means working into the night.

Past 1pm?

That’s the truth of it

No matter how big or small.
