Product Description

The Brown & Sharpe chrome-framed outside micrometer has a vernier scale in inch units for taking precise outside diameter (OD) measurements, a convertible friction drive thimble mechanism for uniform or variable pressure during adjustment, and tungsten carbide faces for wear resistance.

The micrometer’s frame, thimble, and sleeve have a satin chrome rust- and glare-resistant finish. Frames with a base measurement range greater than or equal to 1” are heat-insulated to help reduce temperature-related expansion or contraction. The vernier scale on the thimble and sleeve is graduated to 0.0001”. Depending on the model, graduation markings on the barrel may be straight or slanted to help reduce parallax errors when reading. The ratchet mechanism can be disabled for variable adjustment control. The spindle and anvil have flat measuring faces and are carbide-tipped for wear resistance. A spindle lock helps provide secure locking of the measurement position. /p>

Micrometers are precision measuring instruments that use a calibrated screw to measure small distances. These measurements are translated into large rotations of the screw that are then able to be read from a scale or a dial. Micrometers are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering. There are three types of micrometer: outside, inside, and depth. Outside micrometers may also be called micrometer calipers, and are used to measure the length, width, or outside diameter of an object. Inside micrometers are typically used to measure interior diameter, as in a hole. Depth micrometers measure the height, or depth, of any shape that has a step, groove, or slot.

Brown & Sharpe manufactures precision measuring equipment and metrology hand tools. The company, founded in 1833, played a key role in setting industrial standards in the United States. Brown & Sharpe was acquired by Hexagon Metrology in 2001, and is headquartered in North Kingstown, RI.

Part Number: 599-3-32Measurement Accuracy: +/-0.005mmResolution: 0.0001"Range: 2-3" Verified Purchase
Purchased the entire 599 series micrometers in 0-1", 1-2", and 2-3" sizes. This one being the 2-3" has a much cheaper and looser feel in operation to it when compared to the smaller sizes in this series. The 0-1" and 1-2" micrometers have a very distinctive silky smooth operation when turning the thimble, whereas the 2-3" has a much looser and cheaper feeling to it that CLEARLY sets it apart from the two other micrometers of this series. I sent back the first 2-3" micrometer for a replacement, and the replacement that I received feels even looser and cheaper than the first one! So I will just have to accept that Brown & Sharpe may have a much looser tolerance in the ID (inner diameter) threads in the Frame of the 599 series 2-3" micrometer. For a micrometer with such an expensive price, I expect it to feel a lot better than a $25 import throw-away version, but unfortunately, thats what these Brown & Sharpe 599 series 2-3" micrometers feel like. Very disappointed in this but I will have to accept it if I want the whole set like I needed. It just feels CLEARLY inferior to the 0-1" and 1-2" 599 series micrometers. Very disappointing Brown & Sharpe!!!
