A probably really stupid question about dial test indicators.
I stumbled across a minty Lufkin LARGE dial, dial test indicator (.0001) for $5 the other day. Crystal is good, everything moves smoothly..but the "pointer" was missing. A customer gave me one that screws in just fine..but here is the question...and Im blushing to ask..
How long are the pointers supposed to be? Perhaps Ive had a stroke or its a case of brain fade..but doesnt the length of the pointer make a difference as to the actual measurement displayed on the dial?
Length of lever and all that stuff.
