It is very lightweight, although it has an aluminium frame. Aluminium alloy makes the instrument last longer. What also makes the instrument light in weight is the fact that it comes in a small size. You will not have to struggle when you are using the instrument.
It is convenient and compatible enough to work with other tools, such as the measuring tool. The bottom base is designed to stay attached to metal surfaces that you will be working with. What makes this possible is that the base has a built-in magnet that attaches to every metal surface. Chances are very high that you will be working on metal surfaces often. The magnetic system is so powerful that the base connects to the surface from any angle.
Not only do you use this instrument on metal but also wood, buildings, and machinery. It comes with a quick display that is backlit for easy visibility. The LCD screen is a bit bigger. It makes the readings more clear in lowlight areas. Only one key lights the display. The brightness is adjustable. You can even lock in the numerical value by short pressing the hold key. You will be able to read the measurement without being afraid of losing the number.
A long press to the hold key will convert the display mode. The finder is made up of an aluminium alloy shell, and that makes it durable. The power supply comes in two AAA batteries that do not come in the package. The fact that it's operated using three buttons makes it very easy to use. Even the way readings change is evident. It has a manual that gives you instructions on how to use the instrument.
The fact that it is responsive makes it a great instrument. It is more compatible with numerous tools such as spirit levels. It does not change its performance when it comes to different types of surfaces. It works well on level surfaces as well as on uneven surfaces.
