Editor's Notes

October 21, 2018:

We've expanded the number of digital height gauges on our list to include models for both DIYers and professionals. We've also included some models that double as depth or thickness gauges without compromising their ability to produce accurate height measurements, such as the iGauging Multi. Despite sometimes being off the mark by a few thousandths of an inch, we felt the Taytools DHG still deserved a spot on the list due to its many other useful features.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
