Default Need refresher training

I bought this on Ebay 8 to the door so I couldn't pass it u. Saw one about fifty years ago but forgot the details. I know it indicates revs and you need a sweep second hand or stop watch but forgot the multiplier number and what the stacked numbers repreesent. i.e. 90 over ten...

Thanks gurus..

The stacked numbers are for going different directions, clockwise or counter clockwise. I had to go look at the one I've had in my tool box for years. It actually belonged to my father.

You might be surprised to find that Starrett will often provide instructional booklets for tools like that, free of charge.

Try giving them a call Tuesday. 978-249-3551

Thank you both..This is actually a Craftsman No. 4060 but I'll bet it was made by Starrett..I think the Starrett is a No. 104. I like old technology...

My son acquired a couple of Asahi manual tachs that apparently have some clockwork in them. Up to 10,000 RPM in 2 RPM increments. ??? Like big, heavy dial gauges.

You're probably right, but some of Crapsman tools from that era were actually copies of Starrett tools that were made by Lufkin.

I have one in my toolbox, and it has 100 turns to make one dial rotation. Has all the increments marked off, no stacked dials.

No...no say it ain't so. The US invented making cheap copies...and the chinee stole the idea.

I believe you are right. I keep forgetting about Lufkin. Very high quality..
