Vernier calipers are precision measuring instruments, something Auto
Zone would not understand.  They also nowadays come as dial calipers.
You can buy a pair adequate to your purposes at a cheap tool place for
about $25.  Plastic ones are as cheap as $3-$4.  On the other hand,
you could _very carefully_ cut a strip of cardboard the width of the 
float setting and do just as well, if not better.
