Every Spring, I break out my axe to chop up the various limbs that have fallen in the yard during the Winter.

The axe was originally owned by Abraham Lincoln when he was a rail splitting lad and was a gift to our family. Of course, we've had to replace the head 4 times and I believe this is the 6th or maybe the 7th handle.

I wonder what other STARRETT tools he's unloading? He might have other bargains if his "Micrometer's" a C clamp to him.

I certainly wouldn't drop mine for $35.

The set he's selling would classify as an antique...Judging by the condition of the box and how shiny the mics are, I'm afraid they have been cleaned up quite a bit, and the patina removed.

as far as being mics that you use on a daily basis...I'd put the older Starretts against most other brands as far as accuracy goes.

No. I was looking for a 320 grit ass plug but this popped up during my search. I don't know why ebay's boolians are so random sometimes.

What a jackass...if he used if for a C-clamp, let alone left it closed with the spindle & anvil touching, it's no good anyways. Well, to the resolution on the barrel at least.

I find Starrett to be on par with Browne & Sharpe. Mitutuyo are tops, IMHO...seem to have a smoother thread.
