Axminster Dial Test Indicator
The Digital Test Indicator is used for measuring eccentricity of rotating parts and for setting work accurately in the lathe. The spring loaded arm, which has a spherical end for accurate location on the work, moves up to 1.3mm either upwards or downwards from the central position for maximum flexibility of use. The 30mm diameter dial is calibrated in 0.01mm steps, making this a very precise instrument indeed. There is a choice of either 6mm or 8mm mounting stems which slide onto a dovetail strip on the back of the indicator body.
This magnetic base has a rigid 12mm diameter centre post and a very solidly-mounted cross bar with an ingenious spring-loaded adjustment system for varying the height of the dial indicator. The universal fitting on the end of the arm will take the standard 8mm stems of our various dial gauges as well as having the facility to mount an indicator with a lug on the back. The mounting fitting can be rotated through 360° in two planes to give maximum flexibility in positioning the indicator. The base is machined on the bottom and one vertical side to allow for a choice of mounting positions.
