    I've just found a load of old micrometers at work, do they much value to them?

    It really depends what they are, but you'll get a few quid for each one.

    If you can post some images I am sure one of the experts will be along for advice.

    E bay will give you a rough idea how much they may fetch.

    They are a fantastic find/acquirement.

    Bit big, in fact a lot big for me.

    Certainly a nice find, but being honest they are a little rough. With a bit of a clean they could be more appealing. Worth making a note of manufacturers as some are worth more than others and if any have been calibrated recently I.E. are still in cal.

    they don't fetch much at all or at least at autojumbles they don't . not in that condition some mug on ebay might pay over the odds for them :)

    Those look really interesting for anybody into old tech.
    I have a nice Brown & Sharpe 0 to 1" in it's box. Do I use it? Nope. But it was given to my Uncle as an engineering prize at Malvern College in 1931, funded by Morgan Cars ( All gold leaf printed on the case) It certainly gives me a nice feeling when I see it on the shelf, next to the calipers that I do use. He gave it to me when I started on the engineers trail. My Aunt, bless her cotton socks, gave me a hack saw and big tough bag. She confused the 'engineer' bit with plumbing:laughing:.
    Miss both of them, loverly people.

    The anvils are rusted on most of those. They might make useful hobby tools but they'll never certify. They don't have much value, certainly not enough to warrant having the anvils lapped by a metrology place IMO.

    Why not put them in the for sale section on this forum? I can't suggest a price but I'd do that before eBay, if they were mine.

    I sold 4 M&W mics late in November. There were 2 0-1" and 2 1-2" I got just over a tenner for them after the ebay fees.

    Whats funny is that I had a broken Mitutoyo Caliper that made as much.

    Funny old world init?
