    Yeah I made an edit about the roller wear - but where true elongation is cumulative over the measured span, the roller wear measured by the chain checker is not.

    Nope. Chain checkers are quick, rulers are more accurate. You're doing it right - use the chain checker for frequent checks - no need to use the ruler until you get multiple chain checker readings...
