The Brown & Sharpe Value-Line 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 has a baked enamel finish for protection and durability. The vernier scale on the thimble and sleeve is graduated to 0.0001”, and has a satin chrome rust- and glare-resistant finish. 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.

5/9/15 UPDATE: The quality control of these Brown & Sharpe micrometers is HORRENDOUS, even WORST than ever! Since I already made the mistake of buying a full set of Brown & Sharpe micrometers years ago, I am stuck buying this brand each time another one of my existing micrometers wears out and becomes junk prematurely. Every Brown & Sharpe micrometer I have purchased in the last year has issues with either the thimble, friction ratchet, spindle adjustment, and now broken pieces rattling in the body my 9-10 pair of micrometers!Read more ›
