6 in. 4-Way Dial Caliper is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from works fine plastic, non-magnetic, comes back to zero each time. Only goes out to 5.5". Works for me nice price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value. Easy to use. Use it for quick measurements. The plastic jaws don't damage delicate objects.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like the bird said: Cheap, cheap, cheap The bezel assembly kept falling off - held it in place with tape. The dial had burrs that would not allow it to turn to zero the needle - had to trim them off. The ends of the outside jaws were too thick to fit in the thread of a screw to check screw I.D. - had to file them down. This one was bought to replace one that I wore out - they sure have gotten cheaper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful caliper Good sturdy product for short time use, especially for the price. I recommend this tool. However, it did take longer than usual to ship this product. U.S. Postal Service is much more efficient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best but the best for the price. I used this product for 2 years but it broke several times from being dropped. It had been put back together but the last fall off of the table shattered it completely. This is the best product for the work that I do and is used daily, sometimes for 6 hours at a time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply Said. Do. Not. Purchase. I only bought this caliper because it came down to crunch time for a project and I needed something fast. This caliper is not kind to you if you would also need some metric measurements. It is a cheap plastic piece and not worth the price I paid for it. In fact I ended up scrounging the internet looking for previous measurements taken of the pieces I had to measure and used those instead
