Hint: grab this economical B&S micrometer while supply lasts. The manufacturer will not produce any more under this name or model number once stock is sold out. Be advised that even though the label reads "Switzerland" this does not guarantee that the item is, in fact, manufactured in Switzerland. Since it has a suspiciously low price, we would guess otherwise.
Repairs? Forget about it. Parts will not be available and at this price, it would not be economical.
