Amen to that byerly. I retired last year after 30 years in offshore oil, and about 10 years ago I needed a slide caliper and a micrometer so I ordered both at the same time. Both were notch quality and top notch price. The price never bothered me in the least seeing as how Texaco was paying for them . Strangely enough somehow when I retired they mysteriously must have "fallen" into my bag, for when I arrived at home, safely for the last time, I found that they "followed" me home. It did not seem cost effecient for me to drive 50 miles and then charter a helicopter flight of 120 miles (one way) to return them offshore so they had to find a new home on my reloading bench. Now if only I could order a new pair of eyes to replace these eyes that need glasses to be able to read these fine Starret insturments!
