    I stopped in at a garage sale today and found a Brown & Sharpe 599-1033 digital dial indicator. Claimed resolution and accuracy of 0.00005". http://www.thesafetyequipmentstore.c...-599-1033.html

    Brought it home for $20

        Nope, no widows involved. Guy was moving, and that was the sticker price he set on it. After charging overnight, it works too! It was the only machining item at the sale.
