I have recently started using the one pictured below and I like it. It has a small flat ground on the surface as you can see. It starts to make a clicking sound as it comes in contact with the work, this is a warning that you are about to reach your destination.

It also has better repeatability, that is to say it pops out closer to the same place than the smooth type I used to use. This is a good tool to have for short production of parts that have no means for locating as the clicking sound makes finding the edge faster than the smooth type.

Shit began hitting the fan in the 1950's

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.
