  6. Dial indicator held by a magnetic base to check for runout.  The chuck collar was showing 0.0036” (thirty-six tenths) variation on rotation.  That’s OK for the collar, but would be unacceptable for a bit in the chuck.

  10. Don’t use this micrometer too often in the woodshop.  It can measure to 0.0001”, but it’s only repeatable if you work on making your touch really consistent.
