Here is a Starrett No. 658 HEAVY DUTY magnetic base with a Starrett No.000 to 1.000 dial indicator. This magnetic base is a MONSTER!!!! This base dwarfs the much smaller Starrett No. 657 magnetic base as shown in picture #2.
(not included) This set-up has a maximum reach of a little over 31" because of the extra 9 1/2" extension arm that has been added to this set. You can see in the 3rd picture where this extra arm has been cut into the foam padding for storage.This huge base even has an extension rod with fine a fine adjustment feature making set up much easier. 6,7, and 8 The Starrett dial indicator is in great condition moving easily with no hesitations and always returning to "0".
This set has its own red metal protective case that is also in very nice condition. It opens, closes, and locks easily just as designed. This case has a few minor imperfections suffered from protecting these tools but nothing that would stop it from protecting this set for years to come. This base weighs around 8.2 pounds and the box and everything weighs almost 13 pounds, very heavy duty. All of the parts in this set have no initials or engravings just a few minor scratches and dings from normal use.This American made set would make a great addition to any precision toolbox or anyone who has a need to really reach out there. Please look at all the photographs as they can describe the condition of this magnetic base/dial indicator set much better than I can. 658 HEAVY DUTY magnetic base with No. 25-441 dial indicator 659" is in sale since Friday, September 26, 2014.
