```Doug,

In[12]:=
Set1 ={{1.01,5},{2.1,4},{4.3,4}};
Set2 ={{1.02,4},{3,8},{4.305,8}};
err=0.15;  (*
two numbers are considered equal if they are within err of one
another *)
In[15]:=
Intersection[Set1,Set2,SameTest->(Abs[First[#1]-First[#2]]<err&)]
Out[15]=
{{1.01,5},{4.3,4}}
In[16]:=
(* Extract the x values if you like  *)
%[[All,1]]
Out[16]=
{1.01,4.3}
