Default Digital Calipers

I am looking at buying digital calipers and was wondering if anybody had any recommendations. Do you know of any good online resources or sites to buy from? I want to make sure that they are metal and not plastic.

Thanks.

Check on eBay too. I got a 150mm digital caliper on there for like 10. Works great.

The harbour Freight appear to be the best priced deal out there...You really cannot beat $16 plus shipping for a pair of 6" digital calipers

Hey to all who responded,

Thanks for all of the recommendations. I just placed an order with Arbor Freight for the $16 6" model. It should arrive in 5 - 10 business days. Slow freight is $7.99 and UPS ground is $8. One cent difference. I can't believe it.

FYI- the Harbor Freight ones are the exact same ones that Sears sells as Craftsman for like five times the price. Right down to the same case. I've got the ones from HF and they're great.
