Default Run-out gauge. Where to buy?

Eventually I'll need a run-out gauge to measure various things in my shop. Centering lathed items, table saw blades etc etc.

Where to buy one and for a good price?

Default Run - Out - Gauge

We poor folks use a feeler gauge. If it's good enough to fit a piston to a cylinder it's good enough for my kind of wood work.

The magnetic base available separately is a little iffy but I can work with it.

Accurate enough to match my digital calipers measuring the thickness of paper.

Total: ~$30 including tax.

There was a digital version of the dial indicator. I passed on that option.

Ralph I have the one from Harbour Frieght. It works quite well. I am not sure why you would want one for centering turnings on the lathe. I have never used mine on it. I use my tool rest or just eye ball it. You are going to true it up anyway.
