Here is a Starrett No. 657AA magnetic base with a Starrett No. 196 dial indicator set that are in good used condition. These tools have been used so you will find some cosmetic imperfections but nothing that will hinder their usefulness.Please don't let these imperfections detract from what is otherwise a very nice used set of tools. The magnet has some paint missing, scratches, scuffs, and some dings on it.
It turns "on" and "off" easily and "sticks" solidly to any smooth steel surface. Everything slides around easily and locks down tight wherever you want it to. The Starrett dial indicator set has also been well used. I want to point out that one corner of the little c-clamp has been ground on and one of the posts has a little bend in it.
These are just cosmetic flaws and do not effect thier usefulness. Everything will work perfectly for you! The protective case has done a very good job of protecting these tools. Unfortunately the red cover is missing. Otherwise, it opens easily and snaps shut.It will continue to protect your tools for many years to come. This base and indicator have a vertical reach of about 16" and a horizontal reach of about 8". These American made tools are ready to go back 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.
