" That old Brown & Sharp looks like a mighty fine instrument."


Hi Reg :wave:


It is a bit special, since I found it as a kid & have had it ever since !

The fact that it actually works & is useful is a great bonus !!


I do like tools with some 'history'.

I have a few other such gems, but none quite as OdD as an archeology find ! :shocked:

Well ... I never quite got round to 'Side 2' ;)

Like every great L.P. the flip-side always has some unique 'grooves'. :cool:





It looks from 'Side-2' that the ol' No.8 was previously owned by one ... E.H.Wood.


If it wasn't already obvious from the previous photo ...

... check out the 'knurling' !

This micrometer has been SERIOUSLY USED !!


I don't figure I've worn off more than 1/2 Thou" of knurling since I've been using it ! ;)


:brill:
