But what if its a top-quality brand, made in America, Switzerland, or Japan? Though it might be performing with sufficient accuracy and precision, it probably isnt, and either way you wont know. Take, for only one example, a Compac test indicator I just had on my bench and tried to calibratean absolutely pristine gage with an action as smooth as can be, made in Switzerland by the premier gage maker in the world.Many sellers would list it exactly as is and call it perfect. Yet it was so grossly out of calibration as to be useless. This doesnt present a problem, of course, if youre unconcerned about the performance of your gages and you have a penchant for significant uncertaintyor are prepared to undertake the calibration yourself. But if you need to rely on the accuracy and precision of your gageswhich is the whole pointthen you must have confidence in them.
Why This Indicator Is Better. This dial indicator is BETTER than a new one. I can make and guarantee that claim because every indicator I sell undergoes the following rigorous and highly time-consuming process, and is calibrated to the following standard. Comprehensive and meticulous cleaning and inspection.
Total refurbishing, including with new parts, where necessary. Precision tuning and calibration, for this indicator to a standard of twice the accuracy and precision of a brand-new dial indicator (see below for specs).
This is why the indicators I sell are a MUCH different proposition from the many uncalibrated mystery indicators for sale heremost of them, ludicrously, at higher prices, even when they've obviously been found at the bottom of a dirty toolbox and thrown up for sale without a second thoughtveritable antiques, indicators covered in dirt and grime, with cracked crystals, or clearly broken! No mysteries here; just the guarantee that this indicator will function like new, but to a standard twice as accurate and precise.001 indicators this means accuracy of ±. 002, respectively, and repeatability and hysteresis within.
In contrast , I guarantee the gage to twice that accuracy and precision: within ±. 0005 for the first 2-1/2 revs and ±. 001 for the rest of the measuring range; and repeatability and hysteresis within ±. While a new dial indicator might be this accurate, it may not be, you wont know if it is or not, and it certainly isnt guaranteed.I currently have listed many indicators in a wide variety of brands, types, graduations, and measuring rangesplease check them out if interested. If you have any questions about this indicator, other indicators, or indicators in general, dont hesitate to contact me. I have far more inventory than whats listed, including indicators from Starrett, Mitutoyo, Federal/Mahr Federal, Brown & Sharpe Bestest, Interapid, Compac, and much more.
If you have a need for a certain indicator or multiple indicators, just let me know. You can also rely on me for any repair, replacement, and calibrations needs. Certain sellers have appeared who are stealing my item-listing copy and style word for wordat least one to the point of shamelessly copy-pasting everything exactly as you see it here, down to the typeface. Gage was tested on a NIST-traceably calibrated gage tester that is graduated in 25 millionths. This provides the precision necessary for testing even tenths gages.Nowhere else will you find this kind of guaranteed quality at such a value. If youre interested in this fine American-made indicator, please consider the other American-made Federal indicators for sale. For some reason Federals get less respect here than Starretts. Just like Starrett, Federal has a long history of making high-quality gages in America, which continues to this day.
Dont underestimate themthey are, in every way, the equal (and in some cases the superior) of the American-made Starretts. I've seen and calibrated enough of them to know. Try one and see for yourself.
25-341 dial indicator with jeweled bearings, made in USA. Like every indicator I sell it has undergone a thorough and meticulous process of cleaning, inspection, refurbishing, and precision tuning and calibration, so that it is working perfectly and indicating to a standard twice as accurate and precise as that set by ANSI/AGD and used by all metrology shops and manufacturers for.
Plunge action is as youd expect from a perfectly functioning indicator: smooth, crisp, and responsive throughout travel, with the lighter spring rate characteristic of this classic Starrett model. AGD Group 2 gauge, with 2 case diameter and 3/8 stem diameter. Features a continuous-reading dial to 100 (050100) with. 001 graduations and rev counter.The continuous dial is the only difference between this indicator and its 25-341 brother, which has the balanced-reading dial. 010 per rev for a measuring range of 01. The classic American-made Starrett thousandths indicator, here guaranteed to a standard twice-as-accurate-and-precise as a brand-new one. Dial: Continuous-reading to 100 (050100).
An important note to buyers: cold temperatures can and will adversely affect the functioning of precision gages, including dial indicators. To be safe, please allow your indicator(s) to acclimatize fully to room/shop temperature before actuating plunger/lever.
