Anyone recommend a good paint depth gauge that doesn't cost the rather?

Just amateur detailing, but good Tool to have in the box
 
I've got a CM 8828. Seems to be sold under a few different brand names.

Be good to know what you buy and how you get on with it :thumb:

This looks very good option, thanks for the link.

If you pay a little more and get the advanced model it reads a wide range with a much better resolution so maybe this is the one to get.

Just need to find some reviews on accuracy compared to a professional tool.

Googled this and found it on e ay for £250 does that sound about the right price?

Thanks for the info :thumb:
 
I paid half that in 2007. Many years have passed, but it still sounds a bit much for a basic unit.
 
Mine is the CEM DT-156 and I don't think I paid more than £70.00 and I am very happy with it

Quick Google and this looks a great bit of kit. Thanks for the info.

Where did you get it from ?

Looking at ebay and Amazon all the ones I can find are from China and I'm wondering if these are rip offs of the real thing. I know when I was buying a obd2 reader alot of the Autel units on ebay / Amazon were clones.
