This page is designed to help you find equivalents to dial indicators with small dial faces which you might own or want to replace. It will show the new models when others have become obsolete. It can also help you find better quality equivalents or—vice versa—cheaper alternatives.
If you are looking for a larger dial face, see page 202.
We have taken the major parameters into account: the range, the graduations, the dial diameter and the stem diameter.
We've divided the models into groups of those with 8 mm diameter stems, and those with 3/8" diameter stems. Some indicators ship with a lug back, others have flat backs and lug backs need to be ordered separately. There will of course be some variation from one manufacturer to another. For a detailed comparison of manufacturers and brand names, refer to page 14.
