The basic set (E) with a 3/8" stem attachment.
They are also a good bargain when treated with a little bit of respect although they are a poor comparison to their European counterparts, when you start to examine their construction. Yes, the bezel and crystal can be easily replaced but because they are all plastic to begin with, they will break, crack or come undone much more frequently than the sturdier, more permanent designs of other brands. Note: the manufacturer has chosen to use epoxy to keep some parts in place, including the contact point! It may be hard to unscrew your old point if you want to replace it.
Full set (T) also includes .157" diameter stem attachment, swivel clamp, 4" long holding bar as well as 1 mm and 3 mm diameter carbide ball contact points.

Mitutoyo borrowed the design of the Swiss BesTest indicator by installing a single unit, removable movement which is available as a replacement part, potentially making repairs easy. However, individual parts may not be available.
