    Japanese Guessing Sticks as one of the old Toolmakers called them have their uses. I've used some that were quite good. My. Biggest complaint about the dial type is the input gear jumping time. The digital type if they are +/- .01mm is .0004". Face it close enough for most stuff. I cut the depth wand off though. Too flexible IMO. One ofv the handiest things to use a dial caliper for is layout work. Much easier than a square. Digitals are too hard to set to a length To use them for that.
    Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.
