What is a micrometer?
A micrometer is a tool that is also known as the micrometer screw gauge. It can be used to achieve an accurate measurement on very thin objects. A micrometer can either be inside or outside. An outside micrometers can be used to measure wires, spheres, shafts, and blocks. An inside micrometers is used to measure the diameter of holes. Depth micrometers are used to measure the depths of slots and steps. When precise measurements are necessary, the micrometer is the ideal tool for the job because the measurement and reading are on the same axis and the anvil end is supported by a strong frame.
