The L.S. Starrett Company, a leading global manufacturer of precision hand tools and gages, metrology systems and more, has introduced distinctive looking micrometers featuring American Pride and Camouflaged themes emblazoned on the frames of its most popular outside micrometer series. The new limited special edition No. T436.1 themed outside micrometers are available in either individual 0-1", 1-2", 2-3", 3-4" models, or in 0-4" sets in custom wooden cases, and all are offered in either American Pride (No. APT436.1) or Camouflaged (No. CFT436.1) themes that are printed via a special process on the tool’s enamel coated frames.
“We know how proud American machinists and inspectors are of their work, their tools and their country,” said Mr. Tim Cucchi, Precision Hand Tools Product Manager at Starrett. “We feel these distinctive American made tools will give the opportunity for skilled workers to express themselves individually on the job. The tools are also an ideal collector’s / gift item for the holidays.”
