    when I say "rc tool box" I mean at ur work bench. I use mine a lot when I have to buy a part and don't know which to get{usually when I buy mods}.it also is nice to see how much a part might of worn down. u don't have to get a digital one, but they're better. hope this helps.

    if you like measuring your rc parts or taking measurements for rc projects then yes it is a good idea.
    tool choice is a matter of personal preference as to if you will use that tool ,,,if you are not going to use that tool then you would be better replacing the tool with one that you will use. :cool:

    I use mine a lot for picking the right size drill for installing screws and hardware.
