The storage box is also mint, but does have the odor of pipe tobacco on the inside foam.... Not bad, but it is there. This is the Heavy Duty(large) Magnetic Base Indicator Holder-Post Assembly Including Post, Snug, Gage Rod with Clamp and Fine Adjust, and Thread Adaptor No.
The Dial Gage is AGD No. 25-145, also in perfect NOS-like condition. The upright posts are 3/4 inch in diameter and the rotary on-off turn dial is a breeze to magnetically attach and detach to flat bench steel or round steel. The magnet is incredibly powerful. The red steel storage box is also impressive(heavy weight) Starrett quality.
These Starrett tools were owned by a close friend who made special sculptures in his shop and also was a true collector of the FINEST tools made. Hope you can use this amazing tool.
