An early and unusual pair of c1900 direct reading micrometers by J.T. Slocomb of Providence, Rhode Island. These 6-1/2" long hand-held thickness gauges are similar to the standard shaft-read micrometers except they have an indicator disc and pointer indicating the depth of the measured item (in this case probably sheet metal). They are painted cast iron with machined brass shafts and dials; they are each stamped with the maker's name on the shafts. One has an applied black marking disc with white numerals (up to 250) while the other has a brass face. They are in original untouched condition with only minor paint losses and surface oxidation from age and use; we have lightly oiled the brass and cleaned off the dirt. This pair is in excellent original condition with no dents, bends, losses, damage or repairs other than a bit of surface roughening to the brass and the minor paint loss. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use. Surface shipping to the U.S. starts at $13 for one (other spots may vary) - insured is higher, and mandatory on items over $95 if paid with a credit card. Items paid with a credit card will be shipped to confirmed addresses only. We do ship internationally. All of our prices are in $US. NOTE: we DO NOT accept PayPal.
