    Another Quick Change Indicator

    Here is my take on a quick change indicator holder. I had an extra aluminum quick change tool holder from when I built my own tool post (I bought a commercial unit and the shop built has long been melted down into something else) Anyway the holder looked to be a good start for a holder, Added a bit of 1/2"X1" bar stock drilled for the indicator slotted with a 10-32 socket capscrew for a clamping bolt and now no more articulating arm holders to center on the lathe!

    Hi,
    Just as a suggestion, on your tool you can add many other fixation holes as on this link, then it's usable for interior use and with more measuring tools etc…
    A picture of the possibilities.
