I had a cheap Chinese DTI when I started out. I felt dirty and sad whenever I used it.
Then I got a much better Enco.
Decided it was time for an upgrade and just scored a Girod-Tast and Swiss made Federal Testmaster which is, I believe, a rebranded Tesa.
They both work beautifully and are a pleasure to use.
Just thought I'd share my excitement. :cool:

Good set, I'm betting you'll use the Federal most often and save the Fowler for the really precise stuff

Girod Test makes great test gear. I have one that reads .001mm which is roughly .00004". The tool repeats better than any other instrument I have including Interapid and Mahr. Very high quality gear. Keep it in its box to keep it clean and it should provide a lifetime or service.
