Smart move re-using the original foam. Good protection and storage for your calipers.

Just out of curiosity, why can those calipers not be called a crescent wrench? The jaws are parallel, and you can use the locking nut to hold the jaws rigidly in place while you turn the bolts or nuts, just like with a wrench.

Don’t be silly. Its a nutcracker. If you can’t get it to crack almonds it just means your thumbs are weak.

I’ve seen them used as a spanner and C-clip remover. Have seen micrometers used like a C-clamp.

They’re not a crescent wrench because of no toothed drive. (Smartass – LOL)

They make ok coffee depth indicators and stirrers.

Good point. I stand corrected. But, I bet they could make an awesome pair of tweezers.

Because people tend to slouch when sitting, which is incorrect posture.

Sharpen the pointy bit some and those would make an excellent ice pick, precision ice-picking.
