Lowes and Home Depot carry a varied selection. From the inexpensive to the pricey ones.

IIMHO, you would be better off with a 150mm metric scale. I can send you one for free.

Doesn't need batteries!

Look at the brain exercise you get and it's a standard option with the scale.

I'll even include a free pencil.

Howard, I forgot to mention, it's a dual unit scale, metric & english!

I have a real nice one that is 36" long and measures in decimals, inches and all the usual increments including Sh*tloads. Up here in Tennessee we measure everything by the sh*tload.

One of the most useful accessories I own is this pushrod measuring tool. Attaches to the caliper blades and makes link measuring very simple.
