I would rate this mag base as a best buy. At work I used the $100+ variety and this one seems almost as good. The swivel action is a touch rough in places but it doesn't affect the function. A very minor point. I noticed there were a lot of complaints about the really cheap mag bases such as parts breaking. That's why I decided to try this one. I haven't used it much to date but I don't see anything that is poorly made or likely to fail. I bought it from Amazon but there is no price advantage versus buying from Grizzly. Amazon essentially adds Grizzly's price to Grizzly's shipping cost plus a little extra to arrive at their pricing. If you buy more than one Grizzly item at a time you will save money buying direct. This unit is a copy of the Noga with a slightly weaker magnet. Grizzly also offers a stronger magnet version but I don't know why you would need it for the main function of holding a dial indicator.
I've owned Noga bases before, this obviously is a knockoff but it works well for my applications. It is almost as good as my old Noga base that grew legs and disappeared from where I had it stored. Conclusion: It is worth the price, its not that expensive, its "like" a Noga for a fraction of the cost, magnet is not "as strong" as a Noga but it is not too weak to hold an indicator and that is what I bought it for.
the magnetic base is strong, but the arm does not hold very well and was loose after working with it for 15 mins, additionally the tension screw at the tip of the arm became stripped and will no longer function properly. Spend the $20 extra and get one that will work.
