Caliper for measuring pads and rotors?

Anyone have a recommendation for a digital caliper for measuring pads and rotors?

Don't need a digital, a vernier caliper works just fine, but with digital calipers so cheap, may as well get one. Get two nuts and measure them together, now put one nut on each side of the rotor and measure across the nuts. Subtract the measurement of the two nuts and you have the rotor thickness.
