    Calipers on sale for the Canadians

    I do not know how long this sale is on for, or even if it extends past my province of Ontario.
    But if anyone wants a pair of digital calipers, now is the time to go to your local Canadian Tire store and have a look.

    They are regularly $43, but I got a pair today for $30. I measured some guitar strings with them, and they seem to be accurate.

    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    Yeah, I am real pleased for a few reasons. I was visiting a friend a couple of months ago, and he had a pair. I went to my car and got my little bag of mixed picks and had some fun measuring them all, and comparing their measured thicknesses to their claimed thicknesses. I also wanted them for measuring strings on my various guitars. When I was younger, I could easily see string thicknesses by holding a known string next to an unknown string. That is getting more difficult lately, and I don't expect it to get any better.

    A couple of weeks ago, I found a pair online for $10 or so. I bought them. They were accurate, but to a decimal point less than my friend's. So no good for measuring picks or strings.
    So yesterday I was in Canadian Store getting paint, and I thought I would have a look at their calipers, just in case. Lucky me.

    I use mine for so many things on my builds I would be lost without them.

    Let us know how much. And maybe they have sales?
