Enco Bore Gage?


Enco has "Quality Dial Bore Gage Sets"on sale for ~$35, marked down
from ~$100. Stock numbers are TF240-0112 for 0.24" - 0.4" and
TF240-0113 for 0.4" - 0.7". Does anyone know how serviceable these
are, with or without the supplied indicator?
I bought their $30 0.2"-1.2" inside micrometer, expecting to have to
measure over the pins with a good mike, but it's actually quite good.
I aligned the marks at 0.300 and measured 0.3001 over the pins.

Jim, For that price you can afford to throw it away if it doesn't work. Steve

I think someone else had gotten these and commented that they were unexpectedly good quality for the money, so I ordered the 0.24-0.4 set and the 0.4-0.7 set. On the web site both gage sets are pictured with a wooden box.
The 0.4-0.7 set arrived first. Although the box was red plastic, it had a metal latch and a real hinge on the back of the case, and the interior had well fitted gray foam. It came with a sheet of instructions. The gage worked and was repeatable. The dial indicator that came with it had MHC on the face. I prefer wooden cases, but the plastic case was of decent quality, so OK, I'm only minimally disappointed.
The 0.24-0.4 set arrived yesterday. A little disappointing. It arrived in a Harbor Freight quality red blow molded case with poorly fitting interior compartments. No instructions in the box. The anvils didn't quite have a good looking finish. The supplied wrench was a really sloppy fit on the tiny nut at the end. The dial indicator cosmetically looked identical to the one in the 0.4-07 set, but did not have MHC on the face of the dial. The measurements were repeatable. The poor case and the sloppy wrench detracted from what is probably an OK gage.
I checked the catalog number and that matches with what I ordered, and the web site shows the sets with wooden boxes. The wooden case pictured on the web site is almost bait and switch compared to what I got. Is this typical of Enco currently? I haven't bought much from them in the past few years.

I received the .2-.4 and .4-.7 ones together and both are of the same decent quality, in red plastic boxes marked MHC. The instructions don't apply to the small sizes and when I checked for better ones on the website the smaller one was listed as on backorder, so apparently you got a substitute.
