Freaky Friday - Memorial Edition
This is a micrometer, also known as a "mike". Behind that is a level.
I used a mike when I worked at my Dad's tool and tie shop. I have no idea if they're still used today; I assume everything's digital now. Mikes are (were) used to measure the exact widths of things. The mike and level shown above were my Dad's; my mom gave them to me after he died.
Dad died eleven years ago today. You can read a little about him here.
I love you, Dad.
