    Yet another winner from Edge Tech

    Perfect for checking/setting tailstock alignment/offset when paired with Edge Tech's Tailstock Alignment Bar. Even better if you've got your own lathe and you can lock the height in a toolholder to centerline.

    Why did I not buy one of these sooner

    Wow. Is this useful. No more fiddling with setting up a dial indicator with its stand and holder for quick checks of a work piece in the lathe. Why did I not decide to have one of these sooner? At the price, anyone can afford a good, extremely useful tool like this.

    You don't know you needed one until you use a few times and wonder how you did without it.

    Nice Indicator for the price

    Posted by R, Schexnaydre on 22nd Apr 2019

    This is a one of a kind item for these people. Very nice and nice package and it works great. The only improvement would be to add a little arm when checking things very close to the chuck on a large machine. Putting the operation arm to the left of the product would help also. It is great and there is nothing like it around.

    Outstanding Professional Product

    Posted by Michael on 14th Mar 2019

    I have been machining parts and making tooling for over 30 years. So far, all the Edge Products that I have used seemed to be very well made and very well thought out for fit and function with the machinist best interest, even on their wallet. Definitely this lathe tool post indicator is nothing short of awesome. It clamps in quick and easy, even into a smaller tool post holder and the large dial is easily read to quickly aid concentricity adjustments for chucks or machining parts. Another great feature is the durable and form fitted case to keep indicator stored and protected when not in use. As always, I Highly Recommend!
