I just got this adorable federal tenths indicator off eBay. It's so small!!
It feels a bit tight, but it may just be cold.

I have a Starrett one just like it. Needs a new lens, the old one has shrunk from heat and humidity and falls out.  I've never used it. Haven't had a need for it.  Dad had it left over from a job at his work many years ago, it was an extra one that was never used.  Nice find Shawn.

I also got a Starrett 196 from the same seller for a good price. Solves my deep hole attachment problem. But the indicator doesn't always return to zero. Needs to be cleaned. Need to find a Starrett repair center in Ontario.

Nice score Shawn! I also have a few of those. Collected them along the way. Thought I would use them on my mirco machines because of their nice small size. But, as time marched on, I have found that the indicator idea on any of my machines would just get in the way and not be meaningful. I do a lot of that thinking. All the piles in shop of I need that! are proof! LOL. Would be kinda difficult to find those little indicators If I had to in the piles, another LOL!
