Kanon Vernier Calipers 18 Inch Capacity Stainless Steel
This is a nice, clean, quality 0-18" capacity vernier caliper, marked "KANON STAINLESS MADE IN JAPAN". This is a very good quality caliper with Outside readings on one side of the caliper. It features the hardened stainless steel bar and jaws, and fine adjustment, all in very good condition. It has .001 inch increments, and 1/50mm graduation on the top scale, the scales are in great shape with a satin chrome finish. This is a used caliper, but in top condition with no owner's marks, no wear noted, and not on any precision surface. In about 99% like new condition! This is a top quality caliper that lists for about $500 new. I do have the Styrofoam carton it originally came in, the carton is in solid condition and has protected this caliper very well. The reason that this caliper is quite costly is the process involved in hardening stainless steel is quite extensive, and requires top machining techniques for finish machining. Your will be glad you bought this fine quality precision machinist tool.
