The fine adjustment feature helps setting your indicator up a breeze. The red cardboard protective box has done a very good job of protecting this base. It looks great, still solid, and will continue to protect these tools for many years to come. Also included is the No. This base has a vertical reach of approximately 13 1/2" and a horizontal reach of about 9".This American made magnetic base is 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.
