Made in Athol (No, thath not a lisping way of thaying asshole) Massachusets, is a Made in America product reminded me by Rich of Rich's Garage.
Starrett products are about the best in the industry-they don't come close to comparing to even the best Japanese stuff. The feel and action of Starrett mikes and other tools are like no other.
I intensely dislike Starrett dial test indicators, but otherwise the stuff they make is very, very good, and it's still made here. Thanks, Rich, for the reminder. Damned good stuff, that.
