Most plunger-type dial gauges have a range of 1 inch. That is fine for most applications, but if you need a significantly longer travel, it's not so easy to find a suitable gauge. The Mitutoyo 3058SB-11 has a throw of 50 mm (2 inches) and is available in either metric or inch graduations. I am using this as a readout on the X-axis of my small milling machine to eliminate backlash errors. Since all the parts I make are 1-2" long, this dial gauge provides an accurate, moderate cost solution. I mounted it using a magnetic base, so it is easy to move around for differing work setups.
I've used this dial indicator several times on motorcycles, and it provided good service. Typical excellent Mitutoyo quality. I thought the yellow dial would bedistracting, but now it's easy to tell it apart from my inch indicator at a glance.
