I'm looking to request a couple tool upgrades for my shop, that I can request
for xmas.  I'm looking at a decent set of sliding dial calipers, something
metal.  I would assume anything from Starrett, but that's probably the upper
limit of the price range.  Is getting something with a digital readout going
to be a risk these days for accuracy and breakage?  I might be using them in
the cold too, which makes me wonder if they readout will work OK - probably
safe to stay with the dial readout I'm guessing....

Also looking for a nice dial indicator, something with a magnetic, flexible

Basically I'm wondering if some of the brands that can be found on
are reliable - to try and make the buying process easy for the purchaser...
