    This is a simple situation, you get what you pay for.

    It may work for you, if you take the time care on installation and that you don't ask it to do micro-mini work.

      Probably just as god as the Mitutoyo one which sells for over $150. I am amzedby the very reasonable quality of cheap Chinese measuring gear. I have a combination of used Starret and B&S stuff. I also purchased a 0-4" set of Chinky micrometers, a 1" travel dial guage and the Chinky knock off of the Bestest and they are exceptional value for money.
      I'm sorry to say..............

          I bought a 6" version of one of these, also from Hilbordtool - as the others say, it works fine. Finish is a bit iffy, the graduations are painted onto the steel strip (so don't use solvents to clean it...), and the plastic housing's not exactly top class - but for the price, it's fine.

            Does anyone have a photo of one of these mounted on a Bridgeport-type mill? I've been thinking of getting one, and a few quick glances don't reveal a nice, easy and quick way of mounting it, where it's not in the way of a depth stop, quill lock or the head-tilt bolts.

                Here's my solution for mounting one:

                This is on a round ram J-head, so it might be a bit different for the dovetail ram.
