This is a print version of portions of the Long Island Indicator web site which has become a popular source of information for professionals, machinists, technicians, repairmen and students alike. The author's approach is candid and no-nonsense. Although it doubles as a catalog, that is not the main focus. What he has created is a reference book. It provides information that most instruction books leave out. It is a perfect companion. Here you will find evaluations of all the major manufacturers' gages; equivalent models when searching for a replacement whether you are upgrading or looking for cheaper alternatives; calibration techniques; do-it-yourself repairs including crystal installation; hard to find parts breakdowns for some leading high-end quality indicators and a comprehensive listing of indicator contact points with all the necessary specs included. Having calculated that Mr. Meyer has personally repaired over 34,000 indicators, he feels justified in his claim to understanding the strengths and weaknesses-the inner workings-of these indispensable measuring tools.
