I've got a little cheap import 0-1" digital analog mic I use all the time when +/- .001 is good enough. Its actually very repeatable so I guess I could adjust it. Its repeatable within a couple tenths. When I need to get closer I check with a nearby size gage block first and adjust for any error. Anyway, I was wondering if these are available in larger sizes. I've seen electronic digitals in larger sizes, but I don't recall having seen analog digitals in larger sizes.
I've got Starrets (circa WWII or older) 0-6" that are pretty good and a set of Companion (USA) (ok) upto 4", but I'd like to get something a little faster. I do not care for battery operated mics or calipers. Seems the battery is always dead when I really need it. I really like the analog digital. Its also faster for getting close before I even put the mic on the part.
... and an assortment of el-cheapos.
