It had been kept in a wet environment and had some surface rust. After carefully cleaning the rust off with some Emory paper, Scotch Bright, a wire brush, and touching up the paint, this base has been given some new life. It has been used so it does have a few minor marks, dings, pitting, and maybe a scratch or two, but nothing that will hinder it's usefulness or performance. The magnet turns "on" and "off" easily and "sticks" solidly to any flat steel surface.
The Flex-O-Post arm tightens very rigidly with just a turn of the tensioning arm, making setting this set up a breeze. This set up has a reach of about 15 1/2" vertically and a reach of about 10 1/2" horizontally. The MHC dial indicator has been used??But still looks like new. This is really a nice pair of used tools.
This American made Starrett magnetic base and China made indicator ready to go back to work would make a great addition to any precision toolbox. Please take a look at all the photographs as they can describe the condition of this magnetic base much better than I can. 657 magnetic base with Flex-O-Post and MHC 1 dial indicator" is in sale since Thursday, July 06, 2017.
