Universal Back-Plunger Dial Indicator

Starrett No. 196 indicator is one of the most versatile indicators available…and it is the "granddaddy" of them all. Over the years this tool has been improved by methods and materials but the basic design is unchanged. The design is older than most of you and has withstood the test of time because it is accurate, reliable, simple to operate, rugged with few moving parts and smooth in operation. The antimagnetic indicator with 3 contact points, clamp, tool post holder, snug and hole attachment all in a case.
