The hole in the center is not concentric to the rings that are meant to be held onto with a collet. In fact the hole was .01" out of concentricity. That's a #%!#@%# mile in machining. I also bought a collet adaptor for a test indicator and the hole in that one was also out of concentricity, .011". How these made it out the door of the plant they were manufactured in shows that some one on the cnc making these is not checking their parts and the quality assurance made a pretty bad mistake. Starrett has lost a customer permanently.
Great tool, works as intended. Would have given it 5 stars, but the steps on the larger diameters are a little small (short) and take a bit of care to insert into a collet correctly without it seating at an angle. The edge finder fit into this though is very nice and makes a "popping" noise due to air suction when removing, it's that close of a fit.
Good for quickly using the touch finder without having to change collets.
