Ideal Tool Co. Test Indicator Antique!
This is one of the earliest types of comparison type machanical indicators that I am offering here on Antique Networking. It has no dial face like todays indicator, no plastic either. The body of this indicator is marked "IDEAL TOOL CO. ROCHESTER N.Y. PATENTED". To date, I have never seen a broken Ideal indicator, that is not to say some didn't get smashed or broken, but after about 60 year of use or just being stored, these indicators were made to preform a certain precision tasks, and do it well they have over the years. Sometimes simple is best, and to look at this indicator you can see, it all steel! This one is in great shape with a few minor stains, works good!
