Certain sellers have appeared who are stealing my item-listing copy and style word for word. The Federal I got from you is more accurate than the Interapid I have.
You calibrating them makes all the difference. They are beautiful and even better than expected.Mind, it further confirms all you state in your descriptions as true. This indicator is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for switching out the plate for the lug.
Put it into action within a couple of hours. 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 benefits of this process for indicator function. Completely overhauling a gage confers manifold benefits, and it requires a major investment of time and labor. 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 (which already presents problems of its own), if it hasnt undergone this type of servicing there may be problemsarising from dirt, accident, or abuselurking within that havent yet reached a critical point, but will. In this way, too, these are far 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.

Starrett 708B dial test indicator, made in USA. Most importantly (yes, more important than a lack of engravings or how shiny and pretty a gage is) this indicator has been fully serviced, to be sure that it is in perfect working condition, and tested, to be sure that it is indeed working like new.Im not saying that it appears to be working like new or that I suspect its working like new. It is working like new. I know this because I took the time and trouble to subject it to a complete servicing and calibration (both described in more detail above). Of late, having seen some indicators described as refurbished when they are quite plainly crusty, it occurred to me that there may be some justifiable skepticism among buyers about the extent to which indicators are being serviced and refurbished. Ive therefore included photos of some of my indicators in a state of disassembly. Of course, this adds considerable time to a process that already takes long enough without also organizing and arraying the parts for photography. But I suspected such a view of the indicator might be of some interest to potential buyers. The Starrett 708B has an angled body shape almost certainly borrowed from Interapid Mitutoyo have also adopted it. Similar to the Interapid, the contact points angle of attack, in reference to the target surface, wants to be at an angle for maximum accuracy.
Starretts website doesnt address this point, but my calibration determined that the indicator is most accurate at the angle whereby the contact point is parallel with the bodys slanted edge and the dial is level. The calibration photo shows this angle, though the indicator is obviously in a vertical position and not the horizontal position in which the dial is level.Notably, this indicator has a very light measuring force. It has a 1.4-diameter dial that is graduated. 0001 and is balanced-reading to 5 (050) with rev counter. It makes slightly more than two revolutions in both lever-up and -down directions, for a measuring range of. On this indicator the needle always turns clockwise, regardless of lever direction.
Dial: Balanced-reading to 5 (050). Range of measurement: 0.020. 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.
