Chip, are you shopping for mics? I would suggest pawn shops for used. There are tons of them out there these days. The machinist trade took a huge hit when the economy went sour (ask how I know). Stick with Brown and Sharpe, Starrett or Mitutoyo for used ones. The ones Harbor Freight sells are OK, too, believe it or not. I have two sets of those, one set of Starretts and one set of Mitutoyos. The HF Chinese-made ones hold accuracy just as good as the higher priced name-brand ones (didn't use to be that way).
