Starrett Bench Micrometer

Bench micrometers are ideal for final inspection of parts. The digital readout speeds up the process and no special training is required to use it.

  • This digital model can be connected to a computer but it works perfectly well without.
  • Parts up to 1" can be measured with an accuracy of ± .0001"
  • Repair service, if needed, can be obtained from Starrett's own repair facility.

Hints on How to Use

This is different from the indicating micrometers (dial micrometer) as made by Mitutoyo or Etalon Swiss. The micrometer anvil is not detractable. You will operate the Starrett Bench micrometer just as you would any other micrometer except that it comes with a dedicated micrometer bench stand leaving both hands free. You take measurements with the spindle (in inches) or you can take measurements with the digital display which gives you the option of zero-setting at any point. This way you can quickly measure deviation from the desired, or required, dimenions. The digital display can also be switched to metric.

Here is what the manufacturer has to say:

The 777 Electronic Bench Micrometer is especially suited for precision measurements where the work must be brought to the gage.

[The parts to be measured are placed] between the anvil and spindle on an adjustable table, which can be raised to a selected height and locked in position by turning a knurled thumb screw on back of the base. Made of cast iron with black wrinkle finish, the base is heavily proportioned to sustain gage accuracy and assure stability in use. It stands on three machined pads.
