    C'mon man... I have that set & can't tell the difference from my LSS 823's (3 of them). Rods are interchangeable, but it does have a better wrench for the rod ends (wrap around wrench, starrett has a hole in the cap side for the pin wrench).

    True enough. My 1 1/2"-12" inside set is Starret. Bought new, 1961 or so.

    But it really IS a "minority" item under MY roof.

    Not sure I own even four Starret items, total? Well yes, four if I count Webber.

    I don't "hate-on" Starret. I just prefer better.

    As to "C'mon man?"

    Wash your mouth out with hope .. that he takes advantage of really good early medical retirement bennies!

    The Lufkins have landed!

    Great packing, thanks!

    Nice set .... and of a warm and comfortable "vintage"..

    So long as most of the tools are older than I am and can still do *their* job, there's hope for their hoarder?

    I don't particularly like Starrett mics though I don't have a great justification. The Swiss mics just FEEL different and the appearance is more my style. That said, I do have a few things I do like. The 6" pocket scales have etched numbers that are more attractive than some other "computer font" scales. And I have a a small tap holder that is more nicely done than any of the others.

    Congrats on the Lufkins. I've also got a few Lufkin pieces that have a nice look and feel.

    "Tribal thing" originally. My youth, a Starret mic was "company property" ELSE used in motor garages by the guys who had "Craftsman" or "Snap On" tool chests.

    "Real" craftsmen who worked with MACHINE TOOLS had B&S mics distinctively their OWN property - and leather-covered wooden toolchests!

    I was already embarrassed enough to only have a poor-boy wrinkle-finish PAINTED tin box ....made by some cheap outfit called "Kennedy" - same as made fishing tackle and carpenter's boxes & such.

    Harbouring "Starret" mics as might have been stolen from company stores was so NOT on my menu, I paid nine hard-earned 88 cents an hour dollars for an odddball brand no one had ever HEARD of.

    Still have it, over 60 years on.

    That nine-dollar 0-1" Mitutoyo turned out to a Helluva good mic for cheap Jap junk!

    Can't let down your guard though.

    The "Samurai sword" bought once I had real money turned out to be as much the shameless fake as the "Genuine Irish walking stick" Mum bought... IN Ireland, cleverly hand crafted from a single branch hand selected from a wild "chain grown" polypropylene bush!
