Product Description

The Starrett Series 711 Last Word dial test indicator has a balanced dial, a swiveling body, and inch measurements. The horizontal-face dial test indicator has a hard, chrome-plated, steel ratchet contact point for taking precise measurements in machining, layout, and inspection work. The carbide, ball-contact tip reaches into the workpiece for accurate measurements of turned, milled, and ground parts, and for tool setting gauges, fixtures, and inspections. It has a balanced dial and a white face with half-yellow shading for accurate reading when used with a mirror or in a bore jig application. The positive reversing switch changes the reading direction. The indicator has a swiveling tubular body that can be mounted from the top or the body of the indicator using a body clamp, friction holder, or shank. The indicator has a jeweled lever action for smooth operation, and a replaceable contact point. This dial test indicator meets or exceeds accuracy and performance requirements of national and international standards, and is traceable to the United States National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Dial readings with three digits, such as 0-10-0, signify that the indicator has a balanced dial. Dial readings with two digits, such as 0-100, indicate that the dial has a continuous dial. Balanced dials are used to read the difference from a specific surface reference point. Continuous dials are used for direct readings and usually have a larger measurement range than balanced dials. Optional features and attachments include some or all of the following, a universal friction holder with shank, a universal shank with a long and short arm, and a body clamp. Sets that contain all attachments include three contact points (0.9mm, 1.6mm, and 3mm), a body clamp, a universal friction holder with shank, a universal shank complete with a long and short arm, a double-jointed attachment, a height gauge attachment, a surface gauge attachment, and a coupling with a 3/16" (4.8mm) hole.

Dial indicators are also called dial gauges, dial calipers, and probe indicators. These precision measuring tools are used to accurately measure small linear distances and object sizes. The dial magnifies the measurement so that it can more easily be read by the human eye. Frequently used in manufacturing, laboratories, and other industrial or mechanical fields, dial indicators are used anywhere a small measurement must be found and recorded or transferred, such as checking the variation in tolerance of a workpiece. Standard dial indicators measure the displacement along the axis of the indicator. Dial test indicators are very similar to dial indicators, except that the axis of measurement is perpendicular to the axis of the indicator. Dial and dial test indicators can be analog, with a mechanical dial, or electronic, with a digital display. Some electronic models transfer the data electronically to a computer for recording and potential manipulation.

The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company was founded in 1880 and is headquartered in Athol, MA.

This is a great indicator for small-scale machining. It comes with a full range of attachments that allow you to mount it in the mill spindle and tool posts of micro lathes and mills such as the Taig. It's very easy to square up your work, sweep the maill table to ensure the mill column is perpendicular, and any number of other alignment tasks.

This has to be one of the most useful indicators ever made. It's amazingly small and versatile. If you think you need one of these, you will not go wrong here, and it will probably become something you use all the time. It can be adjusted to indicate in all sorts of directions, and the lever action can also be toggled. It's an incredible little object of engineering. Beyond impressed.

Much better than the Fowler mistake I made previously. Got this to give me more travel that my Mitutoyo 0-4-0. Like how it comes with the friction sleeve to mount in a mag base instead of going through the trouble of finding a one that matches. Great quality and price with fast shipping. Built to last. Great investment!

I have several indicators, but this is the one I seem to use. Size, ease of use, reliability and accuracy, are,I think, the reasons this is the first indicator I reach for. It is a little more expensive, but I have some Starrett tools I've used for 30+ years. A reliable product, it just does what it's supposed to do.

I purchased my "Last Word " in September 1971 when I started my apprenticeship it still works like new. I used this indicator several times a day for 38 years. Remember, this is a test indicator, to be used for the "Last Word " after you get it close usually. 005 or less, do this and it will last longer than you!

Great stuff from Starrett - as usual. Now I know why they never stopped making it. Simple to use and very accurate. Adjustable arms don't move when positioned. Great for vise indication and many other tasks. The indicator dial is easy to read - no complaints here.
