I just spent about eighty bucks on a dial indicator and magnetic base and
the next month I got a new cataloge in the mail. They have the same thing
for about twenty bucks! Figures....that's the story of my life.
I think the company is Harbour Freight Tools or something like that. I
don't have it here at the office, but if you want the address and phone
number I would be happy to get it for you.
Reply to my home P.C. which is email@example.com and I will send it
right back to you.
