  1. the gadget guy

    I was very pleased with the caliper as received. The caliper is hefty and well constructed. I also appreciated the email sent describing care and use of the caliper. Being a long time dial caliper and digital caliper user, much of what was suggested is second nature to me regarding the use of calipers, but some of the suggestions were new to me as well.Being a Mitutoyo dial caliper user for 50 years, a caliper that is still fully functional, I have some comments to make regarding some of the negative ratings for the Vinca digital caliper. These include: Be sure the lock screw is fully released and the caliper moves freely. When closing the jaws of the caliper, gently close the jaws until fully closed. DO NOT put excessive pressure to insure the jaws are closed. Unlike my Mitutoyo dial caliper that tolerates the jaws being force closed, excessive force will sometimes result is a non-zero reading being displayed on the Vinca caliper, that must be compensated for by “re-zeroing” the caliper. Once the caliper has been zeroed, I have repeatedly opened and closed the jaws of the caliper without deviating from a zero reading.I have not yet to my satisfaction decided fractional measurements correspond accurately to decimal measurements, but I have not really compared the two measurements in real life, such as by measuring a range of twist drills.Having the ability to measure in fractional measurements will make my life easier from now on, as I won’t be slaved to having a calculator on hand to convert fractional measurements to decimal measurements.Highly recommend the Vinca caliper as being hefty, well constructed and competitively priced for someone looking to purchase a caliper providing fractional measurement readouts.

    I have been using this a lot for close to a year now, and in all that time I have not found a single drawback with it. I mean SERIOUSLY – I even thought of the color of the plastic case, but it is a nice bright red, with substantial hinges and they work well. Thewell for the tool is even lind with foam inside. The batteries? Well there are two inside the box and one in the caliper when it came. As long as you remember to turn it off, or let the auto off do it’s job, then I have not had to change the original battery in almost a year now.The caliper itself is a stainless steel, but it did become slightly magnetic when measuring the dimensions of an N52 super magnet. Even that magnet failed to interfere with the electronics and it behaved perfectly, keeping accurate readings throughout.I know some reviews say that it needs to keep being zeroed a lot. I was afraid of that, but I have had no such problems at all with mine. Even viciously sliding the scale in and out many times, it went back to 0.0000 inch perfectly. I did occasionally get an offset of perhaps 0.0005″, but that proved to be a speck of dirt on the measuring faces every time. Perhaps that was the cause of the problems some were having? Just wipe the measuring surfaces with a clean, soft cloth and the problem was solved for me. Even so, we are talking about 0.0005″ (1/2000″). It is “only” rated for an accuracy of +/- 0.001″ (1/1000″), so that last digit might show a 0 or a 5 and still be well within it’s rated accuracy. This is seriously good for a digital caliper.For me what was a real suprise was just how useful being able to measure in fractions of an inch really is. It reads out in 1/128″, but automatically cancels down to the lowest common denominator. So it would not say 2/128″, but 1/64″ instead. This is astonishingly useful for quick “go” / “no go” measurements, and also it does away with the need for tables to know if that drill with the size missing, is 7/64″ or not? Anything with a fractional inch measurement can be read directly, instead of looking up the decimal/fractional tables.It uses an LR44 (alkaline 1.5V) battery, which are also commonly sold as AG13, L1154. LR1154, or 157 batteries. The slightly more expensive Silver Oxide versions though might be better in the long run, as their voltage is more stable during the lifetime of the battery. Silver oxide equivalents are SR44, SR44SW, 303 and 357.Reading the reviews for this was disappointing. Certainly Vinca seem to read all the comments and replace faulty ones, but they also listen and update the design. Mine having an auto off feature is a good example, as earlier ones apparently did not have this. My auto off seems to put it into very deep suspended animation, as moving the scale does not wake it up, and even though I have left it in auto off for months, there is no sign of the original battery that was in it having run down.There seems to be a lot of confusion in the reviews about what digital calipers are, and what they do. That seems to be why a lot of people have only given four stars or less. I think a lot of mentions of them being “sharp”, might be that they do not know that the beaks of the jaws need to be that sharp in order to measure accurately in confined spaces – such as the minor diameter of a thread. Also to reduce the parallax errors with some types of measurements. The points are sharp, so that they can be used to scribe a mark onto things at the precise distance you have set them to. Them not feeling “very good quality” might be as occasional reviewers have noticed, that the wheel is “wobbly”. This is intentional, as it is meant to better control how tight you clamp them onto the workpiece – Much like the friction clutch you get on micrometers. Engineers know that with measurements this accurate, how tight you make it on the workpiece, can affect the reading. So the whole point of using the “wobbly wheel” is to try to standardise the amount of force that is used to close the jaws and so improve accuracy that way.Digital calipers of this quality ARE accurate scientific tools. Trying to check their accuracy with rulers as some have claimed to do, is not logical – The calipers would be telling you your ruler was inaccurate. Also, I doubt few people could judge by eye that the edge of the beak was in the middle of a rulers’ marking to 1/2000″. There should be NO free play in the depth gauge, or anywhere for that matter. When held to the light, the edges of the jaws should appear to meet perfectly with no light. The same should be true for the beak on the other side, used for measuring internal diameters. Mine were perfect out of the box in these respects. In fact, mine are broadly equivalent to my $200 6″ Mitutoyo digital calipers – Which don’t have fractional inches, as they are older. They are not quite as smooth as the Mitutoyo, but after the use they have had, they are not far off being that smooth now. Where there might be a difference is in (fairly esoteric things for most users) things like the co-efficient of expansion for the stainless steel they are made from? In warmer weather, the metal expands and affects their accuracy. This is why micrometers are held in the crook of one finger, to minimise heat transfer, as these are typically an order of magnitude more accurate than calipers. Most micrometers measure to 1/10,000″, but only for a 2″ diameter. I find it incredible that digital calipers can maintain 1/10 of that accuracy, but to much greater widths. Now I do know that temperature co-eff for my Mitutoyo, but I could not find one for the Vinca (only that the accuracy was taken at the standard 20 degrees centigrade.) I wonder if Vinca could respond with an actual figure, or is it not known / varies from batch to batch?

    This is no Mitutoyo, but for the price you could not ask for more. Honestly, this thing is solid, reasonably hard, and more importantly pretty accurate (more than enough for my needs working with 3d prints). You’ll want something harder and higher quality if you want to scribe on hard metals, but for low end non-precision work, this is way more than you’ll need.Measuring against gauge blocks, it was spot on up to the furthest extent of the measuring surface.I liken it to the difference between a chinese multimeter and a Fluke. Yeah, the chinese meter is going to measure just fine, but it’s not certified, will likely go off calibration sooner, and isn’t built to the same quality as the real deal, but it’ll do well for the home gamer messing around in their garage.

    Yes almost all of the calipers for sale that look like this are the same product made in the same factory with slightly different features or packaging. To that extent, this product is a good value. It does what it claims to do with accuracy and precision and could last several years, just the like the products selling for 10- or 20-times the price. The product came with an extra battery, well-packaged, and as-advertised.Would be better if it had a USB-rechargeable battery instead of the LR44 button battery as a matter of convenience. My prior caliper — same design and manufacture, different brand/no-brand name — failed as the tiny delicate metal contacts in the battery case broke and repairing it myself would have been onerous relative to the cost of replacement. Would also be better if the metal edges and corners were beveled or smoothed, instead of sharp. Designed for right-handed operation, but left-handed people have the alternative advantage of holding the object of measurement more firmly or having their hand free to record the results. It can also simply be operated left-handed with the display inverted. This is to say the handedness may not be an issue for most people.

    These are an amazing deal at the price, so definitely recommended for accurate woodworking.When I first had them, I’d find that they’d turned on in the case and had a dead battery when I needed to use them. So I bought a pack of 12 batteries to make sure that never happened again, but then I found that they weren’t turning on because of being bumped in the case, but because the jaws had moved. They’re designed to turn on automatically when they see any opening of the jaws, rather than having to push the (pretty tiny) on button. So now I turn the locking screw before I put them away and I haven’t had the problem since. Anyone want to buy 11 batteries? 🙂

    Works perfectly. I have several other calipers of different brands, one digital, one with an analog clock-type dial. They are all very close in their measurements of a sized sample, and this one is right in there, so I trust it. Quick and easy to use with a large display. Only peculairity is that in measuring inches, my usage, the first two digits are very large, the rest much smaller. So 1.2345″ would have a large 1 and 2, with 3, 4 and 5 small. This takes some getting used to, and I would prefer that all digits were of the same size, but I can live with it.The case it comes in is heavy, sturdy plastic, holding the calipers securely and snugly. For protective, anti-shock transport, this is a great case. It is difficult to open; however; so in daily use, I keep it in the cheaper, but handier case of another caliper. I do recommend this caliper, and would buy this one again, in preference to others.

  7. Rebound

    I usually review products I have purchased after 2-3 months, but going to review this one the same day I got it. I tested it on a few test objects and compared to my dial caliper it seems even more accurate. The big display is very easy to read, and although I thought this low cost caliper would probably just have good resolution but be less accurate than my more expensive caliper, it actually seems to have the accuracy to make full use of its two decimal place mm resolution.The price is really good. It comes with a great hard plastic case, with foam padding beneath the caliper, but only two circular pieces with thin firm padding that press down on the caliper when stored. The case looks sturdy enough I can drop the case or even toss it around on hard surfaces and not worry about the caliper. The case has a cutout for putting in a pen and a cutout for storing another battery (this product includes 1 battery already inside the caliper, and 1 additional one inside). If the seller or manufacturer is reading, I think the case would be much improved by cutting off a bit of the hard plastic circles and replacing it with a thicker piece of foam, that would reduce the amount of shock that can be transferred to the caliper even more, but maybe wouldn’t make a difference, I don’t know if shock can damage digital calipers.I can’t find any fault right now after about 20 minutes of testing accuracy and examining the product, but will update if I find issues in the future.Thanks Clockwise, the price is really great, and the product is also really great.

    This is a really nice caliper for $20 bucks. If your spending $20 on calipers dont expect it to be great or last long, they are considered a throw away tool at this price. But to my surprise I was expecting some Harbor freight type calipers that are cheap but can get the job done if maybe only for a little bit. I only need these to measure some things every once and awhile and they will sit in its case on my desk the rest of the time. The frame is really nice and sturdy the digital display is where they cheap out. Its cheaply made but works fine for me at least. It has a nice feature other cheapos I have had do mot and this is the automatic on when you start to measure. Ild recommend these not for a student traveling or a professional but for a hobbyist or occassional use these are nice.

    Accuracy and repeat-ability of these Vinca’s seems just as good as the Mitutoyo’s I have at work. Not as smooth, but to be fair the Mitutoyo’s are well broken in. I also have a pair of Harbor Freight digital calipers that I bought almost 20 years ago. They have also been fantastic and run almost as smooth as the newer Mitutoyo’s I have at work. About a year ago, I bought another new pair from Harbor Freight and they turned out to be absolute rubbish. They were gritty, didn’t hold zero, and jumped all over the place. They quickly went in the trash. I was worried that all of the new calipers made in China may have turned to garbage based upon that and a lot of the reviews I’d been reading. I was reluctant to try these Vinca’s, but they have honestly lived up to my expectations in most areas.The main thing I am NOT a fan of is the LCD display. I realize that the large and small digits are needed to provide the fractional display, but the odd combination of digit sizes and decimal point placement makes them difficult to read at a glance in inch mode. I operate in metric mode most of the time, and they are intuitive to read there, but for someone using inch mode most of the time, this is a major annoyance.I wold prefer they’d have left the fractional display out (which I view as a gimmick), and just used uniform digit sizes.Also, it would be nice to have a tap drill chart on the back side, which even my 20 year old HF calipers have. More printed increments on the front slide would also be nice. Once again, even my old HF calipers were better in this regard.However, for the price, I don’t know where you could buy a set of digital calipers TODAY that would perform better (or even as well as) than these Vinca’s. I would definitely recommend them over the current Harbor Freight calipers which have really gone downhill over the years.

    At first I didn’t expect much from these calipers for the price. When I got them I was pleasantly surprised with their quality. Repeatably with measurements is spot on, they glide smoothly along the track, and feel of a higher quality in your hand. After using them for a few months I would say for certain that I would buy them again. I like how they turn on automatically when you open the jaws as well. They have an attractive design that is different from most that have a “cheap” appearance, and for a tool is nice to look at. At first I was unsure on this one because it lacked the finer measurements on the body, but they arn’t really needed, long as it doesn’t die on you. It also comes with a spare battery as well which is nice, and a reasonably good case. Display is large and easy to read as well. No complains here.
