For all intents and purposes, the Swiss-made Tesatast indicator is identical to Bestest, Swisstast, and Roctest. All parts are interchangeable, including contact points.
They are all made by the same manufacturer in Switzerland and only the dials and certain accessories differ. Most significantly, Tesatast indicators come with a metric 8mm diameter dovetail extension attachment, while Bestest is supplied with 1/4" diameter extensions. You will also find Tesatast has several configurations, particularly those with long contact points (1.5"), which are not available in the Bestest models. Conversely, if you don't find the configuration you need here, be sure to look at the Bestest models. Other accessories and contact points are available.
For a more detailed comparison of brand names go to page 37.
All parts are available and repairs can effectively be made on any of these indicators. Our fixed repair cost for these and other indicators is posted on page 30. This includes labor and all parts except a new carbide contact point. It's our policy to replace any damaged or worn parts necessary for the full function of the indicator. This way you'll be sure to get an instrument that's as good as new and one you can rely on.
And, if requested, we'll provide you with a short-form certificate of calibration free with every indicator repair. After all, when your instrument comes back, you need to know that it's accurate.
