This item both holds significance to themselves but also to their jobs. Along these lines, as an experimental physicist and tinkerer, I have decided to create a personalized custom case for a set of engineering tools: Mitutoyo 6″ Calipers, Metric and English screw pitch gauges, small Fillet and Radius gauges, and large fillet and radius gauges. All but the calipers are vintage Starrett tooling made in Massachusetts, purchased from Ebay and Refurbished.
