Here’s the cm scale...the vintage Champ is 0.46mm short, which is quite a lot (5% on the first cm). The current model is OK-ish (0.24mm long)...

Great job, Max, on making the comparison chart.

An observation must be made, however about the Chinese calipers. I would not trust any caliper with plastic parts and digital indicator, their tolerance may be all wrong. Try mechanical one, if you have it. Also I would suggest to make measurement between the lines (cm or inch) not from the tip.

Some good points maxt.  :iagree:

I do have an analogue caliper so will check again. I was more interested in the misalignment of the engravings against the start of the tool, than the actual accuracy of the spacing along the ruler...the tool is generally used to measure from the tip.

But thanks for the feedback  :hatsoff:

Though, if the digital calipers show correct on one example, then they show incorrect on the next example(and the result is repeatable multiple times), one must assume one of the two scalers is incorrect.  :dunno:

Not that is all that important. I mean, who uses a SAK scaler to measure accurately to 0.5MM?  :dunno:

I hate to confess, but I did it. Even used the mag glass to align the centers of the lines on the SwissChamp to the edges of the piece I measured.

The manual is very confusing - it is supposed that the measurement must be not from the tip, but from the bottom of the groove and the pensil tip  ))

I guess I take for granted that I usually always have a measuring tape or stainless pocket ruler with me.

Like many, I don’t read manuals.  :facepalm:

The manual’s instruction introduces even more problems with accuracy.
