For people looking for a budget dial indicator, I think I found a better deal. $18.00 from littlemachineshop.com

I'm sure it's the same one from Grizzly, however it comes with an indicator point set as well.

jinx,
Take rob's advice and get the kit. The dial indicator without a stand won't do you much good and the Grizzly deal is a good one.

You would use the different tips to measure different things. ie an oring groove down a bore you'd use the L shaped one. For checking runout on the clutch, you'd use a short straight tip.

If you want really cheap, just use your thumb. Put your thumb nail very light against the object and rotate the object. If the drag against the nail changes during the rotation, either it is not running OK or you did not support your thumb properly Of course you can use anything else instead of thumb nail, eg Tx antenna

I have the one from Grizzly. What's everyone using for a metal baseplate to fasten the magnet base?

Checking for runout on clutch shafts, etc. High speed shafts need to be true or they vibrate. That's bad

I gently secure my engine while it's in the mount to the vise. It has a perfect platform for the magnetic base.
