    No poll visible.

    I use an old Craftsman (Sears) micrometer caliper, and a Mitutoyo micrometer I retired with from work.
    Since I load mostly .45 ACP, neither gets used much...for reloading, anyway. (The caliper would get the most use when I'm setting up .30-'06 dies, but it isn't really routinely necessary.)

    Machinist dial given to me by a friend. Very accurate and well built

    Dial type, 6", stainless steel, cheap brand from about 20 years ago.
    Have worked perfectly for what I use them for.

    Hehe,I think you misread it Hideit.

    I use a 6" dial caliper from Central,I think.Not the best but good enough for my needs.
