    Default Just wondering:

    I've been trying to order a part for my Starrett last word indicator. The Supplier told me yesterday that this part from Starratt is back ordered, and they cannot give me a delivery date, as Starratt claims they are way behind. (Supplier is KBC tools in Toronto, Ontario.) The part i need is the round ball with a stem that goes into a threaded clamp to lock the indicator into position. KBC's part number 1-855-70557. Anyone else having problems getting items from Starratt, due to them being way behind?

    Can't help you with your question, however, I googled it, is it possible to make one?(I would have trouble making that, still learning). Build thread?

    They are behind because they're waiting for the chinese shipment to come in , oh sorry I mean the globally sourced products.

    Give Starrett a call, they will sell it to you directly if they have it.

    One of the things I really like about Starrett is you can deal direct. I've had them just give small inexpensive parts before (like a battery cover). Compared to mitutoyo (have to go through dealer, then there is a min order blah blah blah) Starrett, when I've dealt with them, is how customer service should be
    .

    I just ordered a couple of indicator crystals from Starrett that they told me were back ordered and wouldn't arrive until April. One arrived in a week and the other in 2 weeks.

    If Starrett will take the order, order up your part and wait.
