So far, I really like these calipers. They are much better quality than the eBay special I've been using. Granted it aint the creme de la creme brand of calipers but they feel pretty solid. Only thing I dont like is the case takes both hands to open where my old ones opened with one hand. Not a huge deal but figured Id mention it.

I have that same gripe about a lot of caliper cases when they require 2 hands. So I just hack off whatever is holding the case closed, or cut the lid off and just use the bottom.

I should see if the calipers will fit in the old case :)

When I was machining, all my regularly used tools were in my box out of their cases. Even though the Starrett cases opened easily with one hand, I still hated having to open them.
