Dial indicator

I need to get a couple of dial indicators, primarily for checking the gears in my race cars transmission when rebuilding it. What is a decent brand for the home mechanic?

Thanks Wayne

Certainly true.

Not if you buy the name brand stuff on ebay. Don't forget there are a lot of brands besides starrett that mean quality. I tend to search out stuff from Federal, B.C. Ames, or Standard.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I've also been very happy with *most* of the import measuring devices, and have certainly gotten more than my moneys worth on most.

I just picked up a DTI on special for $19.99 which is a pretty decent deal. HF also has their dial caliper on sale for $7.50 which is also pretty decent.

I don't even have second thoughts about paying full price for Federal or Standard, think Standard "has a better idea" with their shockproof movement. Well worth the bucks.
