That's the one. The box looks exactly like the ones that came with the mill. Did not really look at the name, but same color. Thanks.

Odd that you should mention that as I was cleaning off the front of scale on the Z and thought it would be much better with a dial indicator. I need to look more at that shortly.

I wouldn't worry too much about odd-sized R8 collets. Unlike 5C or ER collets R8s are designed to hold tools, not workpieces so you can probably cover 99 per cent of what you need with 1/4", 3.8", 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4". On the other hand having a range of 5C and ER collets is really handy because you'll can use them for holding pins and small shafts of various diameters...

I'm not sure the collet if the is same as the box did not open it up from the plastic he just grabbed the box and looked through a few collets and stuck it in that box
I did see the top of collet said the same size as on box have no idea if the collet is chinesium or not

Import or brand is not important.

Got a bid in on a Phase II coaxial indicator with 6 stems. We will see if I win it.

Picked up the flat allen head screws last Friday at Fastenal in Cheyenne. The vise is all done now. Tomorrow Walter and I are going to tram the table and see if we need to shim the column to get it plumb to the table.
