ouch!I bought a surface gauge from them a wile back on sale.
The unit was complete trash
I did read your thread and saw that you got the Noga and Accusize indicator. A bit tough for me to spend $200 on a mag base right now... I wasn't sure where KBC stuff falls here and figure maybe more middle ground but conflicting opinions on that...
The issue with KBC (or Travers or Shars or anyone else) is 'it depends' so very hard to generalize. Some of the stuff is basically the same you can find on AliExpress with a different label & sometimes even higher price. Some of it is upgraded & good value. Buying from a catalog picture is dangerous. Country of origin isn't definitive either because even Starrett is made in China. Fowler is not bad but varies by tool (again Asia). Asimeto is a line some people feel is good value because it closely resembles Mitutoyo (design) but better price point & supposedly good warranty. The issue is very limited CDN dealers, I think Sowa is top of food chain & fans out to distributers from there. I'd put them at 60-70% of Mitutoyo price which is kind of get what you pay for.
