Maplin have 6" digital caplipers on sale for ?9.99 till 20th March.
Stock code N48AA. I assume they're the same as all the other
Chinese-made 6" digital calipers.
The one I got doesn't look quite like the ones on the Maplin site, it
has a silver rather than black scale, but the electronics bit looks
identical. Doesn't feel as nice and solid as my similarly cheap
stainless vernier caliper, but comparing a couple of messurements with a
micrometer and the stainless vernier it seems to meet the claimed
Now I just need to work out what an "electric pen" is, so I can avoid
using one "for the fear of damaging its chip".
