I am thoroughly enjoying this 6”/150mm Metric/Imperial dial caliper I recently bought. I do have a soft spot for analog.

Got tired of fighting with my caulking gun so I bought a Tajima...it's almost too pretty to use.  I think it will be at least a useful as the Tajima fine chalk line.  Also received the new Milwaukee 12v drill with the four chucks.  This one will go into my van with the rest of my mostly Milwaukee 12 and 18v cordless and the CXS will end up in the shop.  I do not have corded equipment in my van any more.  Along with the Milwaukees I have Fein 18v hammerdrill and oscillating tool that stay in the van.

Which is the right idea, as the thing will work as long as you have enough light to read it - not bail on you every few months (or the bad ones even lasting only weeks) when the batteries run out...

I use a lot of electronic measuring devices and I learned over time to remove the batteries unless using over multiple days.  That being said I have Calculated Industries devices and Stabilas that I have never changed batteries.
