"Fancy Calipers"

One day while looking through an 1897 issue of the Sears Roebuck catalog I ran across a listing for some fancy calipers. They looked pretty handy and the price seemed very reasonable at 8 cents, but Sears, for some reason would not honor the order. Perhaps that catalog was too far out of date. Rather than go without I proceeded to make a pair of my own. I finished them February 22, and I was pleasantly surprised how well they work. Those "old timers" knew what they were doing!
