Product Description

The Brown & Sharpe Bestest-5 series dial test indicator set has a black face and inch measurements. The indicator can make either horizontal or vertical measurements, and the black dial and contrasting white hand help make measurements easy to read. 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. The continuous clockwise pointer rotation helps prevent plus or minus confusion and displays reading in fractional inches. The ball-bearing lever system swivels through to 180 degrees. The dial face mounted at the top of the indicator parallel to the axis, and three universal dovetail mounts can be used for mounting from the top, front, or back. Dovetail mounts provide a rigid setup. This indicator has a Monoblock body design with pinions mounted in jeweled bearings in an isolated assembly separate from the outer body, for high accuracy. It is anti-magnetic for safety when used around magnetic workpieces and debris, and has full-metal construction for durability and corrosion resistance. This dial test indicator meets Deutsches Institut fur Normung (DIN) 2270, and Norme Francaise (French Institute for Standardization) NF E 11-053 standards, and includes a Certificate of Accuracy and Traceability. The set includes a black-face dial test indicator, a 0.080" (2mm) carbide contact point, a 0.250" diameter extension with dovetail, a point wrench, a Certificate of Accuracy and Traceability, and a storage box.

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.

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.

Brown & Sharpe manufactures precision measuring equipment and metrology hand tools. The company, founded in 1833, played a key role in setting industrial standards in the United States. Brown & Sharpe was acquired by Hexagon Metrology in 2001 and is headquartered in North Kingstown, RI.

Love the indicator. I was measuring lost motion on my Tormach and my coarser dial indicators (in thous) weren't much of a help. This indicator was easy to read (love the dark background) and helped me determine lost motion to 0.0008 as well as verify that my travel was dead on.

I had to replace the indicator I've had for years (due to a crash) and tried to replace it with another brand which was very poor quality. As I use the indicator daily, I had to replace that one with this B&S. I'm glad to see that B&S has not cheapened their product as soooo many other manufacturers are doing these days.

Brown and Sharpe is best in indicators. In black face get the bigger 1.5 inch dial. Dark face makes a little harder to see. Could not find white face under $200.
