    I roll my own sheet so I would be lost without my Vernier caliper, it's an old school non-digital one which I prefer. Once you understand the Vernier system it really is a cinch to use them or a micrometer.

    This Wiki page gives a nice clear explanation of the Vernier scale with excellent animations to help. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vernier_scale
