About the author:
My first experience with test indicators was in the form of a family project. The Swiss manufacturer of the popular Alina 88 test indicator delivered parts to us on a weekly basis. It was our task to assemble them and this we did around the kitchen table on weekends during the sultry Long Island summers of the early 1960s. It was my task to install and adjust the hair springs. My mother assembled the bezels and crystals. My brothers had levers and reversing clips to mount. My father carefully finished the indicators and calibrated them. Ironically, the Alina 88 was quite similar to the Starrett Last Word indicator, an indicator which has not changed in any substantial way over the ensuing decades. The Alina 88 is now long gone but the Last Word remains a favorite among hobbyists and pros alike. I cannot begin to count the number of these gages which I have repaired in the past 35 years but I certainly feel justified in claiming to know more than a few tricks of the trade. With this volume I am pleased to offer my experiences to anyone wishing to tackle a repair of this American classic.
