Here is a Starrett No. 657A magnetic base with a Starrett No. 196 dial indicator in a beautiful wooden case.
These tools have been used so you will find a few minor cosmetic imperfections but nothing that will hinder its usefulness. The magnet turns "on" and "off" easily and "sticks" solidly on any smooth steel surface.The fine adjustment knob helps setting your indicator up a breeze. The Starrett dial indicator is also in great shape. There is a few smudges and scratches on the clear plastic lens, it is still easily readable.
As seen in one of the photographs, the original owner scribed his/her favorite number, 0042, on the side of the indicator. Please don't let this detract from what is otherwise a very nice set. Everything works perfectly, just as designed.The beautiful wooden box has suffered a few minor imperfections from protecting this set. It opens and closes easily, the latches shut tight, and it holds these tools securely. It will continue to protect these tools for years to come. This base and indicator have a vertical reach of about 9 1/2" and a horizontal reach of about 7". It fits great into those spots that the larger magnetic bases just won't fit.
Also included is a snug that holds these tools together and different indicator points for different applications. This American made magnetic base and indicator are ready to go to work immediately and would make a great addition to any precision toolbox. Please look at all the photographs as they can describe the condition these tools much better than I can. 657A magnetic base with a Starrett No. 196 indicator in wooden box" is in sale since Wednesday, October 16, 2019.This item is in the category "Business & Industrial\CNC, Metalworking & Manufacturing\Metalworking Inspection & Measurement\Indicators".
