^Ditto. I've always found "normal" ones troublesome but have learned to live with them. Those would be worth buying if only to have on hand to let a righty try and use them. Nobody mention can openers!
Certainly would, the number of times digital or dial callipers won't sit close enough to the face of a piece to measure a shallow spigot with the readout in a convenient reading position is annoying.
Would save having to use basic callipers to transfer a reading.
Not sure I can justify yet another set though given the number I have already.
