I didn't open it until this morning, but yesterday Starrett sent me this email:
Did you know that today, May 20th, is World Metrology Day?
On this day, in 1875 the Metre Convention was signed. This treaty
provides the basis for a coherent measurement system worldwide that
underpins scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing
and international trade, as well as the improvement of the quality of
life and the protection of the global environment. Read more about it
Starrett has been providing quality metrology tools since 1880, nearly
as long as standardized measurement. Our tools have been passed down
from generation to generation, with some from that time period still in
regular use. We're proud to know that people trust our products when
precision counts. Please click here http://www.starrett.com/about
