Selffix DIY stores

or

there are shops at Sim Lim Tower that sell what you want. It is Tower and NOT Square.

or

I think there is a shop on the ground floor of Sim Lim Square that sells electronics and measurement devices, they have have it there.

I got my Kerrn (German) v calipers for only $12 from a 'lelong' shop in Chinatown. The also have a dial type that's probably lots easier to read, only problem is it's solely in metric, whereas the Kerrn is both metric and imperial.

Sorry, I don't know how to describe excatly where the shop is, but it's the row of shops opposite the last time 'Pieces' closer to Chinatown Plaza side. The lelong shop quite large and also got camping equip/knives etc towards the inside of the shop.

Sorry couldn't give you a better description of where the shop.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a cheap digital one, try Harbour Freight in the US. They have a website. Do a search.

Cheers!

I saw it in the basement shops too. Not too sure about level 1 shops.

It is along the outer perimeter, i think near the overhead bridge from OG.

IIRC, there is also a shop at the basement of Sim Lim Tower that specialises in measuring equipment.

HTH.
