eBay Caliper Deals

Digital CalipersI’ve been using the Cen-Tech brand digital calipers from Harbor Frieght for years, and with a price between $15 and $20 (depending on sales), I thought they were a good value. Imagine my surprise when I found these on eBay for around a buck a piece!

OK, there’s a catch. First, they’re shipped from China, so not only is shipping expensive, but it’s going to take a while to get here. The other catch is they don’t come with a nice plastic case.

Still, even with shipping, they’re less than $10 each. Not a bad deal at all! I ordered two – one to keep near my drill press, and another for near my new mini-mill. That may change, as my mill and my drill press will sit next to each other.
