Are you a tool nerd?

Recommended Posts

The tools of the the engineer fascinate me.  Micrometers, so simple, so accurate, and in a whole range of sizes.   So here's the opportunity:



In two lots, a full set of micrometers, from one to TWELVE INCHES in fractions of a thousanth!   Oh Joy!

That apart from those up to 3", I cannot think of why or how I should need them, to have that full set would be like owning a complete set of cigarette cards, or a Royal Flush at poker!

Anyone else have asimilar obsession?

I've got a a fair few that came with my mill and lathe including a set of micrometers from 1 - 6".

I'm not a precision engineer by nature so I mostly use my cheap electronic "very near" which is what real engineers call verniers.
