    Heads Up LIdl Electronic calipers and diamond sharpener sets

    As of Thurs 24th March they have on offer digital vernier calipers and sets of diamond sharpening stones.

    Can't remember prices but appeared very reasonable( ? 9 for the calipers)

    i bought the diamond stones before and i found them very abrasive even the finest stone. maybe they have changed the grade of stones this time.

    The diamond stones are crap, go rusty , too coarse, become unstuck....

    Save you cash , might go for calipers though

    just got some, look just the job...but



    the discrepency between the measurement of a .224 bullet
    my dial calipers read in mm so I did them both in mm

    My 20 Machine mart dial calipers - .224 bullet reading at 5.69 (actual conversion is 5.6895999999999995mm)
    8 Lidl dial calipers reading 5.73 (0.22559055118134602")

    and this was the lowest I could get it, without givinga good squeeze it was reading between 5.74 and 5.75mm!

    measured a few more things and compared to known values and those that the dial calipers measured, it is out by between .03 and .07mm every time.
    very handy instant mm to inch converter though!!

    get what you pay for!

    A decent reliable digital vernier is around 70.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Yes.... I had one which went AWOL. The 10 replacement was rubbish.
