a while back I saw a D I and point set in a woodworking order book for
20 or so bucks. Don't remember which catalog and I can't find it now .
I think it had 15 or more different tips and the indicator in a case
all pretty cheap.
I searched for about an hour on line and couldn't find any thing close.
Anybody know who sells a kit like that please point me in the right
It's not that bad. I just looked at their shipping policy and they charge $1.99
handling for any quantity of any particular part number and then $0.49 for any
subsequent part number. Add to that the actual UPS charge. So in this case,
ordering just the dial indicator kit, it'd be $1.99 plus the actual UPS charge.
I don't get upset with shipping policies like that. The ones that piss me off
are the ones who lowball the price, then add three times the actual shipping
charge. I see it on Ebay all the time. I NEVER order from them.
I guess the problem is that I live in the east and they're in the west. A
calculation of shipping charges on their web site for the dial indicator set
(4 lbs. or so) totals out to about $12.25 to ship a $17.95 item.

So you finally get to see how we Left Coasters feel about so many
things being produced in the East. We pay those costs for most
everything. Still, $30 for a DI + mag base +a whole passel o' points
is a good deal.
In contrast, my paying $10.50 for a Chiwanese chop saw + $30 shipping
only to have the thing fry after 5 minutes was not so good a deal. I
haven't been contacted after several calls and emails for a week to
the vendor, either. Use caution: New Dimensions aka Chris9er on Ebay.

Last year I priced shipping a used press from the west coast to the east
coast, it was $200 cheaper shipping the same press from the east to the
west. The reason all of the chinese crap landing on the west coast and
being trucked east and lots of empty return loads.

So the $300 + tax I spent on the DeWalt looks pretty good to me right now,
particularly after 4 years of service...
