View Full Version : A me too gloat.

The gloat proliferation going on around here lately is almost nauseating so here's a medium sized one in my defense.

Buddy at work was straightening his toolbox and says "I got these back when I thought I was going to be a diesel mechanic so here, take 'em. Make me a shiny metal widget sometime and we'll call it even." It's 3" to 4", 5" to 6" Starret mikes and 6" gauge, all brand new

I've not needed large mikes before but it's uncanny how the unusual tools I've lucked into in the past were desperately needed later for a project. If that holds true there must be a BIG project in my future.:eek:

Nice "acquisition".

I wonder if the 5" - 6" I have is older? "Inspection" and "10-24-47" is engraved on the back. No longer pristine but spot on in calibration.

P.S. I think I have used it just one time. But it is there.

Yours is definately older than mine. Matter of fact yours was calibrated a little over a month before I was born!

I think mine dates to about 1988 or so...a mere child.

Let me make it official "you suck", Thank You!Man if I suck, with all the stuff you've been posting lately your vacuum reading is real close to what deep space must be!

There's Warp-Suckage, Hyper-Suckage and as Mel Brooks would say if he was an HSM: Ludicrous-Suckage. A title awarded to you and McGyver both.:D
