i need to carry around like, a pocket caliper. or add a ruler on to something that i already carry with me. don't want to carry more things, do want to measure things.

@fardog It's not as precise as a caliper, but I carry a Stanley 6' tape measure that fits easily enough into my pockets. It comes in handy surprisingly often.

@cstanhope i used to do exactly this, a small pocket tape measure; probably i should just get over it and carry it again. need to find one that has metric and imperial.

your simple reply has convinced me that i just need to get over it and put the thing i already have back in my pocket :)
