It came with two batteries, one installed in the tool and a spare 2. It came with a small screw driver to allow the user to replace the battery 3. It has three modes in the display: A. Thousandth of an inch, incremented every 0.0005 inch (0.0000, 0.0005, 0.0010, etc.) B. Fractions of an inch, incremented every 64th of an inch (example: 1/2, 33/64, 17/32) C. Millimeters, incremented every hundredth of a millimeter (0.00, 0.01, 0.02, etc.) 4. There are two scales marked in the tool: A. Inches, incremented every tenth of an inch B. Millimeters, incremented every millimeter 5. I checked the accuracy of the tool against feeler gauges and a spark plug wire gauge and found the tool to be very accurate. 6. You can take a measurement, zero the tool out, take another measurement of something else, and it will tell you if the second measurement is the same, bigger or smaller and by how much (in any of the three modes) removing any arithmetic errors a person might make in the comparison. Long story short: I highly recommend this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from overall great product Very accurate. Because of the fraction capability and the ability to switch between metric and English units, makes this a great product, especially when dimensioning a part and drawing it in a CAD program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The 8” caliper, works as advertised. It’s an ideal purchase for those of us who like extra precision or don’t see as well as we did in our youth, or both. I love that you can zero the caliper anywhere on the slide, this is very useful for measuring differences, it has saved me some head scratching. I would like if the decimal and fraction functions were displayed at e time, as other devices provide this feature. Also if The Home Depot would ship its orders quicker, most places can get there items out the door in one or two business days. Five business day is a bit excessive and is the main reason I do not order for them more often..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works very well and is easy to use. This was an excellent purchse. The operation is easy to use for anyone and doesn't require any advanced operational knowledge. Price was a little on the high side but was money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT INVESTMENT The General Tools 3-Piece Dial Caliper and Marking Set is a great investment. The set consists of a 6 in. caliper and 6 in. ruler (made of stainless steel), and a carbide scriber with magnetic pickup. This caliper set comes in a handsome and sturdy case for storage when not in use. The easy-to-read tri-mode digital display shows inches, millimeters and fractions, which is essential for our company's communications with both our factory vendors and our international customers. The capacity for making inside, outside, depth and step measurements is essential in our processes. We love the fact that there's the auto on/off feature to extend battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I love this caliper. I'd been using a cheap mechanical for years and while it's been accurate, my declining vision led me to this digital. It's of solid construction and easy to read. I'd tell you more,but this horrible HD mobile website erases every other word I write!
