The Precision Micrometer Screw Gauge

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

This micrometer is composed of a frame, anvil, thimble, and ratchet stop. Used in most mechanical trades for precision measurement. Micrometers use the principle of a screw to amplify small distances that are too small to measure. The accuracy of a micrometer derives from the accuracy of the thread form.
