Listed below are the top 10 customer ranked 6-inch digital calipers that are currently available for sale at prices under $50.

If you are a backyard handyman who simply needs to take measurements that are reasonably accurate, there is no problem with buying one of these calipers. If you are a professional and your job depends on the consistency and accuracy of your measuring tools, then the recommendation is to look under the higher price ranges.
