Precision Measuring Tools

Starrett

Own a few Starrett tools and you begin to realize the quality product this old American company delivers. Along side the newer stuff are old standbys that have been manufactured for years. Hard to beat a Starrett Combination Square with 16R readings!

Founded 1880 in Athol, MA, still the Headquarters, the company today employs about 1,800 people worldwide. Most precision tools continue to be manufactured in the Athol plant. There must be some very old, experienced "tool & die types" still hard at work there - skilled artisans to say the least.

Precision Tools, Gages, Instruments Saws & Hand Tools

The broad Starrett product line includes precision measuring tools (micrometers, calipers, rules, etc.), levels, electronic gages, dial indicators, gage blocks and granite surface plates and custom engineered products. While best known for precision tools in the United States, Starrett is also a major, worldwide manufacturer of saw blade products.

Another good brand that offers solid quality for a decent price. I don't like their rules (engraving, etc.) as much as I do Starrett but sometimes they sell for a bit less.
