One use for calipers that may not have been mentioned is sneaking up on a fit - e.g. when sanding or filing.  The precision measurement allows you to easily figure out if you are removing material evenly, or have gotten a bit crooked. And, since the jaws stay parallel, it quickly finds the high spots, for example on a resin floor, making it easier to figure out just why it doesn't want to fit between the sides of this kit....
