Ok, so I fucked up! and made a mistake... Thank you!
Just meant for it to be more an Idea of the type caliper was not trying to be exact. People are way too fricking NASA critical...

In the very first post, All I was trying to do is be helpful and as it turns out it just made me look like a dumb horses ass... for listening to others I usually trust... So Go ahead and jump on it... and could now care less... I have way too much on my plate to even care!

SO as of right now, I have already an email of pending refund of my money for all the calipers and the indicators... All that is left to do is destroy them take photos, after, send photos of them destroyed and then throw them in the trash...
Simple as that.

No one said they are not usable, just not genuine.

It is what's required to get my refund...
I have had to do this in the past with bogus items...

This is why I should never point people to some things, I do not want bogus look-alike garbage... and sure don't want to pay for it either and should stay away from things I don't know enough about...

The two guys I pointed to them in the first place swore they received real ones who knows maybe they were just getting their kicks out of screwing with me by getting me a bit excited about buying some so cheap... who knows but it won't happen again for sure!

I'll stick to Chinese crap I know a little something about from now on...
If I don't, just retire and give it all up this year... And go find a nice quiet place to just put my feet up... and worry about me for a change...

So here is one can any of you say it is or is not a fake without a doubt
I can not get a link to work without signing in or signing up so might have to sign in/up to view it; It fits the Mitutoyo USA web site identical to theirs.

ANd what is the difference in Mitutoyo USA and Mitutoyo Japan looks me to be two different companies so are they separate???

So, What do you think about these over Sterrett, Mitutoyo, and other fair brands...

I bit the bullet and ordered one indicator and one caliper from Mitutoyo US.
But, I came across these as well... and wondered if they have any use with other cad programs or just the one mentioned. most are inexpensive unless you buy the PC and or Bluetooth interactive ones.

I have used Igaging scales before, I put one on the knee of my mill last year. No complaints.
Bubba told me about these OriginCal calipers, he got his from Grizzly. He says they are good.

I think Mitutoyo is as good as you can get. Nothing wrong with Starret, but the price. I have my Asimeto mike alongside my Starret mike and the both give the exact same reading on the calibration test bar to 4 decimals. Both clutches feel the same.

I think repeatability, and being able to trust the number you are reading, is more important then the brand.

You will have to post a picture.

I see eBay has a shitload of cheap Mitutoyo indicators some are better copies than the one you purchased. at some point if it is not stopped the only way you can tell is by the insides.

the indicators you purchased check the serial numbers are they all, 5 the same?

Before you destroy them open one up and post pictures of the inside.

Another question, how many factories does Mitutoyo have?
The best thing they could do is have them made and marked "Made in the USA"

I assume, assume all their tools are marked "Made in japan"
I would assume all the counterfeits are coming from China, also resold from warehouses in the US.

At a very minimum you need to compare what you are buying with a genuine Mitutoyo catalog down to the plastic case and indicator holders.

originally I think Igaging started out for wood workers and people adapted the scales on metal cutting machines.

just a note.
not too long ago I noticed more of the import digital tools also some from HF have a two place decimal, that is not going to work for machining.

So double check how many decimal places before you purchase any digital items from anyone.

I bought the Mitutoyo's I now have coming in from Mitutoyo website the thing I noticed is the color of the scale is mostly all black with some yellow and the fakes all seem to have lots of yellow with less black seems to be one indicator and seen a good review of them and all were saying the documentation comes with will be a real signature, not a copies

I also ordered some others but one also has fractions on it as well not sure how useful it is but I think it can help me with some things if repeatability is good on it.

As for destroying the ones I got I have not yet now, they are requesting I send them back but am told to wait till the refund is done and I receive a return label, oh and three are the same sn and two are different and from each other but regardless they are fake At least I feel they are... by what I have seen and read today alone I do not condone fakes or counterfeits my self it takes form companies who value their products and it as well is nothing more than scamming the public...
