Yes, that is wonderful equipment! I'm retired so the price made me gasp. I have some excellent calipers and digitals, too but it pains me to tell you that virtually all of those devices are made in China, now. You can get a Chinese copy of those calipers for $20 and truth be told, they're probably made in the same factory.

Here's a representative sample. I use these every day and also used them in my Maintenance jobs in industry.

I've heard all the Chinese tool bashing before but when I returned to industry, I bought all Chinese tools and broke one ratchet and a spring loaded center punch in five years. I worked in a steel mill and in a heavy automated welding and blow molding plant for as many as 80 hours per week. There is no way to use tools any harder than in a steel mill or a heavy manufacturing plant!
