Fyi, Mitutoyo has a solar powered version digital caliper, so no problem with batteries failing. I don't see value yet for the price($120+). I have $35 dial caliper that seems to work for me. I also have my Dad's machinist calipers, the kind that look like a compass from geometry, only with two metal points instead of pen nib or pencil tip, and they have threaded adjustment wheel between the arms.
A de-clutter expert quoted in a recent article to keep only those things, be they socks, dishes, or other household items, that "spark joy." Fine tools, and fine kits, like those offered by the resin kit manufacturers to which list members have directed me, have certainly sparked joy in my hobby recently.
