When I hear the name Starrett, I think of precision measuring tools; micrometers, calipers, gage blocks, indicators and surface plates but certainly not anything to do with processing meat! Well, that changed for me yesterday. One of the smartest men I know shared an item from his collection of antiquities. This meat chopper was patented way back in 1865 by Le Roy (Laroy) Sunderland Starrett. Below you can see it in action. Thank you, sir, for sharing!
