Now Ya Know, Dial Indicator Edition

Pretty interesting. I knew there was some tiny parts in these things. Check out the size of the Micrometer handle on the tester at the end.

  1. One of the things I REALLY loved about being in the compressor industry was
    that I could get my hands on a lot of cool shit. There was a company in the San
    Fernando Valley called Nupla Corp. If you did a good job, the maintenance
    manager might let you have some product that perfect except did not pass
    QC inspection. Nupla made hammers for dozens of tool companies. I drove
    away with a bunch of them.

    Somewhere near LAX, there was a company that did heat treating or etching for
    Starrett. Boy did I score on that job! I ended up with a full four-piece machinist
    square, fractional, numeric and alphabetic drill gauges, feeler gauges, pocket scales
    and a lot of other cool shit! I gave my dad a nice wooden bread box from some other
    company, but I kept the good shit for myself.


  2. With a handle that big, I guess you could really see a gap between the smallest graduations. I’ve seen large dial indicators on some youtuber’s channels (build something cool, used to be metal tips and tricks). My old eyes are wanting one…


Pansies, Trolls and Liberals are urged to flee this place.
