    jjr2001,

    I may just have to buy a digital caliper and put one together for my own use.

    jjr2001,

    You make an excellent point about the old rack and gear style jumping the rack. It can be a pain getting it meshed back into the correct tooth. The old Mitutoyo used to be supplied with a thin shim tool to aid in getting it re-set.

    I think you will like using the height gage with the digital caliper.
    Prior to making mine I would use the digital caliper to double check my vernier caliper!
    Now I just calibrate the digital and mark up the parts.

    Cheers, JR
