I recently bought this micrometer from Anytime Tools. It is a standard micrometer with a vernier scale on the handle that allow interpolation to 0.0001 inch. What is different is that there is also a revolution counter that shows the reading to 0.001 inch. Its country of original is not obvious.
My engineering education is from the time of the slide rule, so it doesn’t bother me to read numbers from “analog” scales. But I compromised with the modern world, and my Pickett N3-ES now stays in the desk drawer while I use an electronic calculator.
For readings to 0.001″, this micrometer agrees with my old Mitutoyo. So I converted quickly; this is the micrometer that I habitually pick up. It is quicker and more certain than reading the engraved scales.
