    The old micrometer I posted on today I acquired:

    Compared to my Moore & Wright imperial mics (and a Tesa):

    It looks like a toy in comparison, though it is accurate on a gauge block.

    That's cool, especially with the saddle ring. :) Moore & Wright produced a tiny 1/2" capacity micrometer. It fit in a reading glasses case you could keep in your pocket.
    Does your little 15mm one have any identification on who made it ?

    You can hang it from your watch fob chain. :)

    No markings, not sure if it is an apprentice piece.
