Need for liquid measurement tools?

I was perusing the local university surplus yesterday and found scores of brand new, high quality glass pipettes, different sizes from 10s of mL to 1/10ths of mL. Would these be useful for liquid dosing? If so I can go back and grab some and offer them in the swap & shop for cost plus shipping. They charge by the "I dunno, ten bucks for the whole box?" method, so you can't beat the price.

I also found used* beakers, erlenmyer & volumetric flasks, and test tubes I could put up if anyone's interested. I got a 12"x12"x12" box stuffed for $10 (about 4X what's shown below) for display purposes only.

*There's no telling what they've been used for, so don't plan on picking up any mad scientist dinnerware. My research has shown that there's no way to be absolutely certain you have cleaned glassware if you don't know what's been in it, so it's never safe to drink from. Sorry about all the bold, but I wanted to make sure I made the point.
