My recently purchased vertical mill has the dial on the right side of the table missing. It is the model KF-VM-C, often refered to as the OB model. I believe it to be about 30 years old. Does anyone have any sources on where I could try to locate an original dial at? I saw a dial on Ebay, it was for a Bridgeport mill, and I have no way of knowing if it would fit.

I make replacement dials or you can make your own. Do the parts you do have tell you the inside and outside diameters and thickness? And I presume it's 100 thou per revolution but it's worth checking.

This dial is 200k per revolution. I have the dial on the opposite end to get dimensions from, if needed. If I can't find an exact replacement, I will keep your offer in mind.
