Mitutoyo 6" model 505-675
The workmanship of this Brazilian made Mitutoyo dial caliper is clean and refined. It has the much sought after thumb roller which gives you great control in opening and closing the jaws. The sides of the beam have been coated with titanium. This means that there won't be any play—and errors—because of heavy use. It also gives them a nice and smooth slide. The dial numbers are very large and readable on a bright white face, without any annoying and misleading subdivisions.
Take note that, because of their low price, repairs will not be economical. Treat these (especially the 4" and 6" models) as "throw-aways" when the time comes. If you just need to replace a crystal or other simple part, you can always buy parts online by going to page 72.
To use the calipers for depth measurement, add a T-Bar depth base attachment as shown on page 203.
