Whether you're gauging the width of gaps, the diameter of pegs, or the depth of holes, calipers are immeasurably more useful than rulers. It's true that the digital variety require batteries, but the ease of use and accuracy of digital calipers will save you a lot of heartache when you've been working too late, long, and hard on a project.
