Default Was looking for a pocket ruler, found this.

Just ordered one. Looks like a handy little tool to carry in my shirt pocket, and I'm thinking I should get my money's worth.

That's an excellent price. My 6" fractional/metric caliper is one of the most used tools in my shop. Besides checking thickness and depth they can help you avoid mixing metric with Imperial nuts and bolts together.

Taking into account currency exchange rate, this isn't too bad...

Since nearly all my measuring doesn't involve numbers or lines, metric or imperial is of no consequence. It'll do all I want and, for an unbelievable price.
Thanks again, Theo.

It will arrive between Sept.13th-Oct, 4th. Good thing I am not in any hurry. When it arrives I will look at the package and think,"Now what did I order now".
