These tools have been used??? You have to look pretty hard to find any imperfections anywhere on them. 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. 196 dial indicator looks flawless.
The clear plastic lens doesn't have a scratch on it. Everything is in pristine condition, I don't think it has ever been used! The wooden box protective case is also in excellent shape. There are a few scratches on the bottom, other than that, there are very few imperfections on it.
It holds these tools securely and with continue to protect these tools for many 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.
