I didn't realize that Starrett was considered a good make in calipers.
Three years ago I was helping a neighbour work on his car and,in gratitude,
he came over a few days later with a gift - a Starrett 0 - 1" micrometer.
He didn't know what it was or how to use it, but since I did, he gave it to
me.  He'd used it for many years as a C clamp when glueing up small wood
projects!  I checked it on a gauge and it was still accurate to as fine as I
could tell, so I took it with thanks, and still use it often.  It's probably
30 years old at least.
