Mechanical Outside Micrometers

Mechanical outside micrometers are the most common type of micrometer. They measure the outside dimensions of workpieces. They can also measure the internal diameter of a hole. They often have a ratchet that allows you to make multiple measurements quickly.

These tools are available in sets and individually. You’ll want to get an individual micrometer to measure very small objects. If you need to take measurements on various things or if you wish to make sure your tools are working well, we recommend getting a set. The sets come in different sizes so that you can use them for all sorts of projects.

Whether you choose the mechanical outside micrometer set or individual pieces, consider getting a combination set that includes a depth micrometer. This will help you measure the depth of holes and recesses more accurately than with other tools alone.
