Brown & Sharpe No. 570 Vernier Calipers 12 inch w/Box
This is a nice clean U.S.A. made 12" vernier caliper with .001 inch graduations on both side of the caliper (one side is for outside measurement scale, the other side for inside measurement, each marked accordingly), in the original custom hardwood case. It's marked "BROWN & SHARPE MFG. CO. PROVIDENCE R.I. U.S.A. 570". The calipers are in very good shape with the exception of the grind marks on the one side of the carrage or moving jaw and fine adjustment sections. I am not sure, but I assume this was the past owner's idea of a owner's mark. At any rate, it doesn't effect use, or accuracy of the caliper in any way. They have the fine adjustment feature in very good working order, and they have hardened jaws. There is very little wear, moves very snug on the frame. The fitted case is solid with good latches and hinges, it has some minor wear, a some small scrapes on the top, in solid condition with good velvet inside the fitted case. It is also marked on the exterior top, "BROWN & SHARPE MFG. CO. PROVIDENCE R.I. U.S.A." in gold/black lettering. A nice clean machinist tool!
