A long time friend of mine is getting out of the engine building business and gave me a set of 1-6 inch Starrett mics. Anybody have a storage box laying around they are not using that I could store these in?

No boxes here,but those foam floor mats HF sells can be cut into some nifty fitted toolbox drawer liners-

Need to get you a 0-1" to finish the set out-

I hate to make smart remarks but I wouldn't be too concerned with how I stored those mics. Doesn't look like the previous owner was.

The corresponding calibration gauges would be nice.

Gauge block set would be more versatile around the shop though.

I checked the 4-5 and 5-6 with gauge blocks and both were on the money.

Good score!
Hope they serve you well.
Don't pay any attention to the perpetual naysayer!
