Yeah, I've got one of those height-finders a friend gave me.. looks identical to the pic but doesn't say 'Starrett' on it anywhere. It works well, especially after I banded an alligator clip and a foot of wire to the base for use on non-conductive materials. Clip the wire to the tool or machine somewhere in that case.
I'm not sure why they cost so much though; it seems like it would be pretty easy to whack one up and surface-grind the tip to set the height.
