Product Description

The Starrett 27-12 improved firm-joint inside caliper has a leg length of 12” (300 mm) but opens to approximately one-third larger than the leg length. The joint allows for tension adjustment, while the tension will not change if the legs move. The legs are made from a high-grade steel and are ruggedly constructed and well-finished.

Calipers measure the distance between two opposing sides of an object. They make inside, outside, depth, or step measurements, according to their type. Calipers are commonly used in architecture, metalworking, mechanical engineering, machining, manufacturing, carpentry, and medicine. The simplest calipers have two legs to mark the two points and require a ruler to take the measurement. More complex calipers use two sets of jaws instead of legs and have up to two graduated scales. Vernier, dial, and digital calipers give direct and accurate readings and are functionally identical, having a calibrated scale with a fixed jaw, and another jaw with a movable pointer that slides along the scale. The vernier caliper has a scale sliding parallel to the main scale for an additional, fractional reading to improve measurement precision. The dial caliper has a circular dial with a pointer on a toothed gear rack replacing the second vernier scale. As with the vernier, this second measurement is added to the reading from the main scale to obtain the result. The dial caliper is used also for measuring size differential between two objects. The digital caliper takes the same sort of differential measurements as the dial caliper by zeroing the display at any point along the slide, with an LCD (replacing the dial) that displays a single, easily read value in both English and metric units. Some digital calipers can hold data readings between measurements and send them to data collection devices.

The L. S. Starrett Company was founded in 1880, originally manufacturing bench vises, squares, and other tools. They acquired other companies throughout the years, expanding their services into making precision measurement instruments and tools, such as calipers, micrometers, saw blades, and gauges. Starrett is headquartered in Athol, Massachusetts and has manufacturing facilities in Brazil, the United Kingdom, China, and other locations.

Size: 0-6" Verified Purchase
Starrett used to be what all others were judged by.
Not sure what happened or is happening?
They are still made in America which is awesome!!!
The first set we got the tips didn't mate up, we sent it back with amazons wonderful return policy.
They sent out a new pair and those were great.

If it wasn't for Amazons return policy, we would have not bought anymore Starrett products. Made in America means something, Keep up the quality!
