        Need an accurate reading for gardening/spraying etc. This unit reads about 1/2 of the rain fall. Looks good--easy to read but not for me.

                After removing it to mow lawn, upon placing pointed end downward, snapped off.

                Did not try to sharpen plastic: end of use.
