Test indicator gauges, also called gages, are precision instruments that measure short linear distances. They are commonly used for detecting deviations from tolerance limits, such as small variations in flatness or height of an inspected workpiece, and permit measurement in narrow grooves or small bores. A test indicator gauge consists of a ball-tipped contact point on a levered arm, also called a measuring insert, which pivots from a hinge point. The reading indicates the degree of angular displacement of the arm. Test indicator gauges are commonly used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering. Standard test indicators measure the displacement of the arm perpendicular to the axis of the indicator. Dial and electronic indicators are very similar to test indicators, except that the axis of measurement is parallel to the axis of the indicator. Test indicators can be analog, with a mechanical dial, or electronic, with a digital display. Some electronic models transfer the data electronically to a computer for recording and potential manipulation.
The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company, founded in 1880, is headquartered in Athol, MA.

This Starrett Dovetail Body Clamp is very good the shank yes is quiet small in diameter but it does the job very well I also like the fact that once you have tightened up the shank to indicate the swivel ball isn't too tight if you should want to adjust it's position you can make a fine adjustment without the fear upsetting your set up al together. I would recommend this one to anyone in need of a quality Dovetail Body Clamp
China junk, teeth didn't hold together more than a couple uses before the ball started slipping out easily. Metal tehy used is just too cheap.
