Thinking I need one of these, whats your opinion of them Thanks, Barlow
Pass on it...only reads down to .0005". In precision neck thickness measuring, you need a decent ball micrometer that will read down to .0001".
I like much of Sinclair and give them plenty of money, but they desperately need peer reviews on their product descriptions..
It's not a spring loaded 'anvil', but spring loaded spindle.
It's 'accuracy' is not .0005", this is the resolution.
It's accuracy is +/- 1.6thou.
Anyway, I would pass on that one, as I would this POS:
This is what I use of theirs: http://www.sinclairintl.com/reloading-equipment/measuring-tools/micrometers/sinclair-digital-case-neck-micrometer-prod38161.aspx
