Default They finally came in "Mitutoyo Indicator"

It took a while about 4 weeks but they finally came in and now I'm waiting on the Vernier caliper to arrive as they are going on 5 weeks to get here...

If your in no hurry and want these cheap I got mine for 21.00 plus shipping so was 30.00 for this one. And 38 for the digital Vernier caliper I'm still waiting on

The place to get these cheap is the wish app. "BUT look carefully" there are some that are "copies/fake" and some that are "Mitutoyo" under the "milyolyo"
name. they are a rename so, I guess would be considered well... you know one of those leg words.

Anyway, they will range from 20 bucks to 500 bucks by different sellers US sellers get them and then jack the price extremely high... I have two machine shops I pointed them to these and both say they are the real deal...

But remember you have to wait and you have to look at the items really hard to be sure the price and shipping and if its the real deal while they have them available...

I bought 5 of each and I'm hoping they will store well as I will prolly only be using them one at a time till one goes bad... Just so that I have a backup.

I noticed that the real quality items usually don't last in availability on the wish app. before it is only American sellers offering them. for exaggerated unaffordable prices... This place is about the same as BG but I will say has been far more honest and dependable than BG hands down but limited to quality machining tools and supplies of like.

Chris, there is an app for apple and android phones called the wish app.
or you can just use the online WISH.com but the online does not seem to give you as many options for searching the site due to it being an app.

That is like the one I got with my cheap magnet holder. Yes, it is metric. I am still getting used to it. .01 mm lines= about .0002”. When I tap my work in get lathe and get it with in 2-3 lines, I usually say it’s close enough.

I did find some imperial indicators, but no Mitutoyo.
