Kinda like a calculator. If you don't have an "idea" what the answer is, either tool can get you in a lot of trouble if you believe the result. These tools just confirm with more accuracy. Your info about zeroing in and checking other positions with a jo-block or other known dimension is right on. My mics are 63 years old and I still check them periodically. I do have a one inch throw dial indicator with a small dial that counts the .100 revolutions. Pretty handy.
