Most importantly (yes, more important than a lack of engravings or how shiny it is; if you're the type of person who buys precision gages according to simpleminded criteria, then I really must discourage you from my listings), this indicator has been fully serviced, to ensure that it is in perfect working condition; and tested, to be sure that it is indeed working like new. Though some of the gages I list for sale are in new or like-new condition, that is decidedly NOT what they're about.
And Im not saying that this one. To be working like new or that I.
I know this because I took the time and trouble to subject it to a complete servicing and calibration (both described in more detail below). The LW 711-T1 is somewhat unique among Starrett test indicators and test indicators in general. Its clearly modeled on the classic Starrett LW models.
But the traditional LW frame and movement simply could not rise to the level of producing reliable results as a. So there are differences in design and in the quality of construction between this T1 and the standard LW 711. This indicator features a 1-diameter dial that is graduated. 0001 and balanced-reading to 4 (040). It makes one revolution in both directions at.
008 per rev for a total measuring range of 0.008 in either direction. It includes the case as shown. Dial: Balanced-reading to 4 (040).
Range of measurement: 0.008, bidirectional. Other: Includes case as shown. 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. If you have any questions at all, dont hesitate to contact me.Are included only if shown and/or described in listing. Ive tried to take photos showing the item as a whole and in detail from every angle; but if youd like to see something in better detail or if Ive left out something that you want to see, just let me know. Please inform me if you do. But what if its a top-quality brand, made in the U. That's all well and good, but it doesnt mean a thing in terms of indicator performance. Though it might be indicating with sufficient accuracy and precision, it just as likely isntand either way you wont know. That significant uncertainty defeats the purpose of using precision gages.
It was so far out of calibration as to be useless, and yet most sellers are listing untested indicators just like this and calling them perfect. This doesnt present a problem if youre unconcerned about the reliability of your measurements and you have a penchant for significant uncertainty, or else are prepared to undertake the calibration yourself.But what if its an Interapid? All the indicators I sell are mechanically and functionally new. I can make and guarantee this claim because every indicator I sell undergoes an extremely thorough and meticulous servicing, including. Cleaning of all parts in ultrasonic cleaner and/or by hand when necessary. Inspection of all parts, for wear and damage, and of the indicator as a whole, for smooth and correct function. Refurbishing and replacement of worn or problematic parts when necessary. Precision tuning and calibration, so that every indicator is verified and guaranteed to be working perfectly and indicating to the very same standard of accuracy and. Precision as new indicator, and in many cases. 0005 drop indicatorsto a standard twice as accurate and precise as new, guaranteed. I remain in some doubt as to whether most buyers recognize the manifold benefits this service confers on indicator function. Im afraid it just doesnt work that way: an evidence-based enterprise like precision mensuration will never privilege tool vanity over objective, actual results. The benefits of the service I perform are myriad, and as a process it requires a major investment of time and labor.
This is not to mention the cost of the indicator, itself. Aside from the obvious benefit of putting the indicator in the best possible condition (both cosmetic and functional) and ensuring that it performs perfectly now , it also ensures that the indicator will continue to function perfectly for as long as possible into the future.
Opening an indicator up and looking inside allows the technician (me) to discover any developing or potential problems and to nip them in the bud. Even if an indicator appears to be functioning correctly (such an assumption already presents problems of its own), there may be issues lurking withinarising from accident, abuse, or the ingress of cutting fluids and dirtthat havent yet reached a critical point, but will. In this way, too, my indicators are more like new indicators than used ones. Gage was tested on a NIST-traceably calibrated gage tester that is graduated in 10 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. 0001 indicators this means accuracy of ±. 0002, respectively, and repeatability and hysteresis within.
I guarantee this gage to the exact same accuracy and precision, meaning this indicator is working just like new. I try to keep a variety of indicators listed for sale at all times, but it can be difficult and I dont always manage to keep up. If you dont see many indicators listed for sale, dont think theyre all gone.
I have a large inventory with a variety of brands including Starrett, Mitutoyo, Federal/Mahr Federal, Brown & Sharpe Bestest, Interapid, Compac, and more, in a wide range of types, graduations, measuring ranges, colors, prices, etc. Dont hesitate to contact me if youre looking for something in particular or to ask for recommendations.
