For sizing and measuring telescopics, i like to have the mic cradled in it's stand.

I have a set from Kennedy. Nicer than the cheapy sets seen at the shows but more affordable than Mitotoyo etc. Working OK for me but I cannot claim any skill.

Hi Geoff - apologies for not responding earlier, I thought I had, but re-reading this thread it seems not.
I ended up buying a single Mitutoyo gauge for the job in hand. On reflection I thought it was probably better to buy what I needed when I needed it and let a collection of sizes I might actually use build up naturally over time.
I bought it over my local Cromwell trade counter - about 25 quid IIRC. They also brought out the Kennedy equivalent (about 7 quid cheaper) for me to twiddle, and to be honest I'm not sure I could tell the difference on the basis of over-the-counter twiddling. But being inexperienced I went for the big name - and it's a sweet tool!
