Default Quality Numbered Index, min 1-60 (will gladly do Z-80)

Wondering what brands the precision shops are using these days. I've got a bunch of really old Irwin hss indexes (fractional and numbered) that are missing things here & there so I've filled them in with random bits. I've also got the usual el-cheap-o import index or three. I'd like to buy a new, really good quality hss or cobalt index, to be used on mild steel, some stainless and aluminum. Thanks.

You won't go wrong buying a Norseman set. Only one I've had much experience with. Other brands may be equally good.

Another good brand if you get into bigger stuff is Consolidated right here in Toledo. They may make indexes.
