I knew it was a fake, since this particular model sells for +ACY-pound+ADs-80-100 new, but was curious to see just how bad it looked. There's a good document from Mitutoyo which details the differences in several imitation products: +ADw-a href+AD0AIg-http://www.mitutoyo.com.sg/documents/Imitation+ACU-20leaflet+ACU-206pp.pdf+ACIAPg-http://www.mitutoyo.com.sg/documents/Imitation+ACU-20leaflet+ACU-206pp.pdf+ADw-/a+AD4-. My indicator is model 513-404.+ADw-/p+AD4- +ADw-p class+AD0AIg-indent1+ACIAPg-The quality is, as you might expect, pretty rough. The mounting dovetails are rather wonky and even have several dents in them (I'm not sure how you actually +ADw-i+AD4-make+ADw-/i+AD4- something like that+ACE-). There are two mounting stubs provided, neither of which is actually round.+ADw-/p+AD4- +ADw-p class+AD0AIg-indent1+ACIAPg-However, for +ACQ-20, it ain't bad. I'm not really bothered about linearity anyway, since my main use has been clocking surfaces (milling vise, holes on the lathe etc) where you're just looking for a small displacement. There doesn't appear to be significant backlash in the mechanism. Although this is made to look like a Mitutoyo product, the actual device is probably the standard Chinese dial test indicator knockoff, since it looks identical to others I've seen.+ADw-/p+AD4- +ADw-p class+AD0AIg-indent1+ACIAPg-The dial is adjustable to set the zero position, and the contact arm can be bent through 90+ACY-deg+ADs- to accomodate different measuring positions.+ADw-/p+AD4- +ADw-p class+AD0AIg-indent1+ACIAPg-It's a good addition to the +ADw-a href+AD0AIg-../20121122+AF8-magnetic+AF8-arm/index.shtml+ACIAPg-magnetic arm+ADw-/a+AD4-.+ADw-/p+AD4- +ADw-table align+AD0AIg-center+ACI- border+AD0AIg-0+ACI- cellpadding+AD0AIg-0+ACI- cellspacing+AD0AIg-0+ACI- class+AD0AIg-thumbnails+ACIAPg- +ADw-tr+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4APA-a href+AD0AIg-photos/DSCN7286.JPG+ACIAPgA8-img src+AD0AIg-thumb/DSCN7286+AF8-t.jpg+ACI- alt+AD0AIgAi- /+AD4APA-/a+AD4APA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4APA-a href+AD0AIg-photos/DSCN7287.JPG+ACIAPgA8-img src+AD0AIg-thumb/DSCN7287+AF8-t.jpg+ACI- alt+AD0AIgAi- /+AD4APA-/a+AD4APA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4APA-a href+AD0AIg-photos/DSCN7288.JPG+ACIAPgA8-img src+AD0AIg-thumb/DSCN7288+AF8-t.jpg+ACI- alt+AD0AIgAi- /+AD4APA-/a+AD4APA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4APA-a href+AD0AIg-photos/DSCN7289.JPG+ACIAPgA8-img src+AD0AIg-thumb/DSCN7289+AF8-t.jpg+ACI- alt+AD0AIgAi- /+AD4APA-/a+AD4APA-/td+AD4- +ADw-/tr+AD4- +ADw-tr+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4APA-a href+AD0AIg-photos/DSCN7290.JPG+ACIAPgA8-img src+AD0AIg-thumb/DSCN7290+AF8-t.jpg+ACI- alt+AD0AIgAi- /+AD4APA-/a+AD4APA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4APA-a href+AD0AIg-photos/DSCN7291.JPG+ACIAPgA8-img src+AD0AIg-thumb/DSCN7291+AF8-t.jpg+ACI- alt+AD0AIgAi- /+AD4APA-/a+AD4APA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4AJg-nbsp+ADsAPA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td+AD4AJg-nbsp+ADsAPA-/td+AD4- +ADw-/tr+AD4- +ADw-/table+AD4- +ADwAIQ--- Insert the bottom navigation strip --+AD4- +ADw-table width+AD0AIg-100+ACUAIg- class+AD0AIg-navstrip+ACIAPg- +ADw-tr+AD4- +ADw-td width+AD0AIg-33+ACUAIg- align+AD0AIg-left+ACIAPgAm-nbsp+ADsAPA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td width+AD0AIg-33+ACUAIg- align+AD0AIg-center+ACIAPgA8-a href+AD0AIg-../index.shtml+ACIAPgAmACM-x25b2+ADs- Workshop+ADw-/a+AD4APA-/td+AD4- +ADw-td width+AD0AIg-33+ACUAIg- align+AD0AIg-right+ACIAPgAm-nbsp+ADsAPA-/td+AD4- +ADw-/tr+AD4- +ADw-/table+AD4- +ADw-/div+AD4- +ADwAIQ--- Include the footer file, which only contains the last changed date --+AD4- +ADwAIQ---+ACM-include virtual+AD0AIg-/include/footer.shtml+ACI- --+AD4- +ADw-/body+AD4- +ADw-/html+AD4-
