I had two 6" Mitutoyo Digimatic calipers die on me. The first one died
5 or 6 years ago but I kept it in my toolbox. I found a used replacement on Ebay at a fair price and last week it died.

I heard of a place near Rockford Illinois that could repair these calipers by replacing the digital module so I took both calipers to have them repaired. These guys replaced the modules while I watched and we visited at the same time. Repair cost was half the price of a new set.

This place claims they can repair any tool that takes measurements. Indicators, calipers, micrometers, anything. Thought I would pass along the contact information.

A year ago I bought the purple colored calipers as a backup set. Made by Mitutoyo but made in China. These read to 3 decimal places. They do not feel like the Digimatics.
