Angle Measuring

Looking for an appropriate tool for the toolbox. I looked online and was surprised at the variety in design and price. What do you recommend?

I use the magnetic base dial indicator for simple jobs and where this one won't fit. I use this 10" digital angle finder for precise work.

I use a simple dial-indicator angle finder for jobs like setting pinion or driveshaft angles. I find an analog dial indicator like the below to be much faster and more intuitive for Jeep work.
