LOL! Sometimes I feel kinna bad for the children that put time and effort into building a tool that is so poorly designed or built it just has no use. WHY? Some of these Chinese tools are so close to being decent useful tools . Its usually poor materials or sloppy design.

HF and precision in the same sentence makes me laugh. When you consider the cost of cranks an bearrings and such Starret or central tools don't cost that much.

I use one of these to measure exhaust pipe, works great for that!

I was at HF the other day and was looking at them. I sold my good stuff years ago because I was not using them. I want a cheap set with good quality. To do hobby work but could not live with the + .01
