    If surface finish is something you want, a good blanchard grind surface with the crosshatch looks very nice IMO.

    Honest question, what are people using spring divider/calipers for these days? I have some myself, but I don't think i ever used them, bought on 'advice' of an older toolmaker in my apprenticeship....

    I am not 100% sure, I was just told that we don't pay the price I see when I am searching an item. We aren't a big company, but we buy almost all our tooling from MSC, so that might be a factor.
