Not always do I get to gleefully talk about my fleamarket finds, this was a big whoops. A waste of money. The mic didn't have a lock and the ratchet knob merely unscrewed. I did get the plastic case the wrench and a cert. The mic was only a .001 . I paid $20 for it and a good Super-Ego 12" strap wrench. If I figure the strap wrench is worth $10, I only wasted $10. I've found Super-Ego to be the equal of Ridgid , BTW.

I try to be very casual about the looking, too close and the price goes up.

I remember seeing adverts for the Etalon micrometer, it looked big and bulky to the point of being clumsy looking.

I don't own any but Etalon Swiss made mics are known to be of very high quality. Their mics with special features are bulky & unattractive (IMO) but they do make mics that are "normal" in size.

While not skinny like an old Starrett, was more the size of a Mit. I guess Etalon made very simple as well.

I have one of the old simple Etalons, I like it.
It's better than me.
