Very accurate and solid tool that I use for critical measurements and calibrating other measuring tools. More than adequate for my woodworking or machinery needs. Very similar to my dad’s version which is probably from the late 60’s. This model might be better if nothing else than being newer and less wear.
Not US Made, but priced as US made
I just purchased this Starrett fractional dial indicator, 1202F-6, from Woodcraft. I specifically wanted a US made indicator and from the price I assumed this tool was made in the US, which I don’t mind paying for a US made tool. The catalog description did not mention that it was made in China, which I consider to be deceptive. I was shocked to see that it was made in China! And that it was priced as a US made tool rather than the $20-30 standard for Chinese made tools. Had I wanted Chinese, I’d have bought one for a tenth the money. But that’s what I got for one priced as though it were made here. I really had more faith in Starrett. I thought they were more like Woodpecker tools and were proud to make and sell US products. But I find that the only part of US made tools they, or Woodcraft like are the prices. Again, I find it just wrong to sell imported tools at US made prices. No matter how you try to justify it, they’re not worth it and Starrett is using their once good name to market overpriced Chinese products. I’ve bought my last Starrett tool.
