With me it's kinda like teaching an old dog a new trick .I suppose I might have been 12-13 years old when my father who was a tool and die maker early on showed my how to read a set of mics and I've stuck with the old school stuff ever since .Fact my 0 to 1 Starrets once belonged to my great grandfather which my father had carbide tips installed on some time in the late 40's early 50's .Still dead accurate after all these years which at this time is over 100 because great grand dad came from England in the 1890's with the mics in hand  or rather in a chest  of tools . Many of which I now own .

the only issue i have is conversion from inches to millimeters. i have no problem doing the math for it, but it takes a little longer than just having it right there on the display. im the guy they call lazy when i find a quicker easier way to do something. others are efficient. :)
when I grow up, i wanna be an adult.
