The tester I had ordered from Amazon can't accurately check the thickness of cast iron so it went back, those that have one what brand\model gives accurate info?

When calibrated correctly (which is not necessarily the calibration method the manufacturer recommends), most brands these days can be very accurate.  I've tested a $1500 model against a $200 model and once correctly calibrated the readings between the two were basically the same.

I'm curious: which brand/model did you purchase that you did not find suitable?

I've got a cheap e-bay tester. Works for me pretty well. Sometimes you have to play with different setting for the material being used. Grey cast, nodular, ect to get it to read properly.
