Starrett

Starrett

The L.S. Starrett Company was founded by Laroy S. Starrett 1880 in Athol, Massachusetts to produce the combination square that he had invented and patented three years earlier.

In the 1850's Samuel Colt had revolutionised the gunsmithing industry with standardisation and interchangeability of parts. Laroy Starrett brought the same manufacturing standards to bear on toolmaking and established a reputation so solid that the words 'quality' and 'Starrett' remain virtually synonymous to this day.

The combination square along with several other Starrett inventions have since been widely copied, but not, as yet, by anyone who can achieve Starrett's consistent accuracy and reliability for less money.

  5. Starrett 125MA 6/150 Master Vernier Caliper (metric only)

    £45.00
    The Vernier caliper provides accurate measurements of inside diameter, outside diameter and depth by using opposing scales to provide a much finer measurement than would be possible with a simple rule. The mm scale on the Starrett 125 is a retrograde vernier (the vernier scale is more widely spaced than the main scale) this makes it much easier to read and accurate to 0.02mm rather than the 0.20mm commonly found on direct verniers. The meth...
