    Tip for using the micrometer, hold it in your right hand with your pinkie
    and ring finger grasping the corner (closest to the dial) of the black body
    part (middle finger used as a rest) whilst using your index finger and
    thumb to rotate the dial. This way you can get a much better precise
    measurement of the item. Hope this helps! Happy New Year to you too!

    I live in athol right near starret tool. Unfortunately they are very slow
    now and have cut some workers to 16 hrs week

    If you ever get a chance to build or make precision tooling, build or
    aquire boxes like these which may also be lined and have low moisture
    content so that the tools inside will not get damaged and or rust. Starrett
    still packages a few select items in wood boxes.

    Those are some beautiful tools. From the comments above you’ve already
    gathered the 2nd last was an inside micrometer but those kind can not be
    bought today anymore. The quality and weight shows the workmanship. we’ll
    never see timber boxed tools again. Now its all plastic. My favourite was
    the machine level and the socket set, i kept some of my fathers old socket
    sets, all in metal boxes like yours. the machine level you got, is it on a
    cast iron magnetic base?

    If you’re still wondering the name of the tool towards the end it is a
    inside mic…a very nice inside mic at that. you came back with some nice
    tools, if you were to buy that kind of quality today, your wallet would be
    alot lighter that’s for sure.

    @saunixcomp as far as i know they are at least 90% usa made and have two
    southern distributors and one factory also down south but mostly it is in
    athol.

  8. John NYCCNC says:

    @MegaMoto4 Interesting – and sad to hear. Do you know how much
    manufacturing they do there versus overseas?

  9. Chuck Norris says:

    very nice tools. there has always been something mystical and mage like
    about machinists.

  10. John NYCCNC says:

    Is there a better tool – e.g. one that’s less error prone?

  11. FuckTheSystemHard says:

    @saunixcomp your comment just goes to show why , you only offered 5 more
    dollars…

    I was looking for a vid that showed me how an inside micrometer works and
    here it is I found it! Thanks !

  14. John NYCCNC says:

    Thanks! I agree – they don’t make them like this anymore. I would
    absolutely pay, say, $5 more for a good tool to have it packaged in nice
    wood boxes like this… Maybe plastic has a longer life span or is
    impervious to the elements, but it just doesn’t feel the same!

    base to accumulate dust and usually have induction electric motors in 3 to 5hp selection.

  17. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult
    to get that “perfect balance” between superb
    usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve
    done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super
    quick for me on Chrome. Exceptional Blog!

  18. 5 HP, 16″ bar with reasonable zest string saw that provides an increase electricity over power. Considering that the original “Saw” hacked its means to container workplace treasures in 2004, five other groups of manufacturers, directors, and authors have maximized the spoils in order to be actually found in buying a group of stars all together and also emulating all of them being ripped separate by machines.
