Remember how in our Amazon Black Friday post I said there were going to be new deals every day? Well, one of today’s Lightning Deals was for this Mitutoyo Digimatic IP65-rated digital micrometer. It was priced at $105, and I had been looking for a good quality micrometer, so I ordered one.
What Does it Do?
Mitutoyo makes a wide range of micrometers which are used for taking repetitive measurements with high precision and accuracy.
Why This One?
Mainly because it was on sale at a lower price than some of Mitutoyo’s other digital micrometers. Actually, it’s current full price of $135 via Amazon is quite good as well.
I was planning to buy a basic Mitutoyo digital micrometer later in the year, but for only a few bucks more I will now have one that’s impervious to coolant, debris, and other such fluids.
This outside micrometer, model 293-340, has a measurement range of 0-1″, resolution of 0.00005″/0.001mm, 0.00005″ accuracy, ratcheting thimble, carbide-faced anvils, and IP65 dust-proof and waterproof certification.
The micrometer comes with a plastic fitted case and starter SR44 battery.

Amazon is having a sale right now through the end of the year on a lot of Mitutoyo products (promo details), and I intend to order a manual micrometer as well.
A lot of Mitutoyo products are made in Japan, and so I am assuming this one is as well. Even if not, Mitutoyo knows how to make quality precision measurement tools.
