Dial indicator

Where's the best place to buy a 1-10mm dial indicator since Pelican doesn't have them?

MSC, McMasterCarr and Enco all sell them online if that helps.

Another option although I'm sure it's of lesser quality than some of the other suggested vendors....displays in metric and SAE and often on sale. I bought mine for $14.99 3 weeks ago.

I know, I know...CHEAP TOOLS...YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR...YADA YADA!!! But here's another vote for Harbor Freight. I bought the digital one and the old skool analog/dial one. I think they're good enough for what I need!
