I do all my dimensioning by hand, except roughing out board thickness with a bandsaw every now and then. Do I need one? No. Do I want one? Maybe. Probably going to get one down the road. But because I know of no other way than with hand tools, and I don’t do this for a living, and I enjoy/respect the perseverance (lunacy) needed to do woodworking by hand, it doesn’t bother me enough yet to not have one. But I have to admit that, the more I do, I am bothered a little by not having one.
