    SPI is, or can be spotty. Low end stuff is well, you will be sorry (imho). The high end stuff is better. Depends on the who makes it. I for one would get Sunnen and call it good.

    If you check out the long Island Indicator web site they disscuss the pros & cons of the available makes. If I remember correctly, parts are not available for SPI. I have some SPI hole mikes as well as B&S. They have worked well for me but as a HSM, they get less use in a year than a real machinist would give them in a day. I think the above comments are right on. In the long run the best tools are the cheapest.
