Discontinued. You might consider switching to metric instead. See page 51.

These are standard outside diameter micrometers of the very highest quality. Nothing better is available. Many Etalon micrometers have been passed down as heirlooms. If you're planning on buying just one micrometer, this is the one. Make your future heirs happy. In sizes to 4". Metric micrometer up to 300 mm.


Old model Etalon model 71.115899 shown above with friction thimble the way it
used to look.

The "new" thimble engravings are crisp and clear but different from former models. Can you figure out what the reading is?

The newest models (introduced in 2013) have a redesigned thimble that can be difficult to decipher for some people. Instead of the short/long/short/long sequence of hash marks, they are now all of a uniform length. If you can get used to it, you will be the proud owner of an exceptional set of micrometers.

Important: as of Spring 2016 these Etalon micrometer are being phased out by the manufacturer. Sales will continue only until stock is exhausted.

Recommendations from the manufacturer

 

Etalon writes the following:

"Every micrometer is supplied ready for use and inspected. However, since they might get out of adjustment during transportation, we [Etalon] advise to check the zero-setting before use. We also firmly advise our customers not to dismantle the instruments needlessly. They need only be cleaned using pure benzene and periodically lubricated with a few drops of high quality purified oil. Check the zero-setting as often as necessary. The guarantee does not cover new measuring instruments dismantled by customers."

 

For additional information on micrometers and what can go wrong, please refer to page 29.
