    Are the smaller type calipers necessary or can everything be done with the larger ones?

    They measure from "zero" to about 15-16 inches, plenty of range.

    Perhaps we can list retailers in this thread for suitable tools.

    if someone does get one, I'd like to see how it stands up to the brick method, which I assume to be the next best thing

    What is the brick method?

    I had to MacGyver some calipers for measuring myself and my family. I imagine that would be better than anything involving heads and bricks, but perhaps my imagination is a bit too morbid.

    essentially you take two bricks (or any flat, heavy, straight surface) turn them vertically, and stick your head lengthwise or widthwise between them....bring bricks together till snug, remove head, then measure (make sure to measure from where the gradients on the ruler begin, not where the actual plastic begins)

    give it a try, I'd love to hear how it works

    what's the verdict Leofric?

    I'm quite interested in seeing how similar the two are

    I was able to buy a set at a forestry products convention that I went to several years ago. They are used in forestry to measure tree diameters, etc.

    Here's a set:

    http://www.forestry-suppliers.com/product_pages/View_Catalog_Page.asp?mi=1383

    This one is in inches but they are also available in metric--probably in Canada and Europe.

    Quite a few to choose from here:

    And of course, there's always Ebay.
