    Noga knockoff repair

    These little Noga knock offs from eBay are pretty good units once you get them up to standards.

    Problem 1. Dovetail does not fit any of my DTIs.
    Solution Used a small triangle file to make the darn thing fit my indicator dovetails.
    Only takes 10 minutes to complete. You can of course use the round hole to
    hold a rod with a dovetail swivel attached for your DTI.

    Problem 2. Base of indicator is not flat.
    Solution Use a flat stone to flatten it. I used an oil stone first and finished with a 1500 grit diamond brick and it only took about
    15 minutes to flatten it. The magnet is not super strong but it holds a small indicator quite well.

    Over all I think the price is right and well worth the little effort required to get them into shape.

    Cheers, JR

    Is it against policy to link to the vendor. I'm wondering if you are ordering directly from China, alibaba maybe?

    What? Where is there a link to a vendor?
    What policy is being broken?
    These are available on line from a bunch of suppliers.

    To clarify, you're welcome to link to the vendor here - in fact we encourage it. You can also link to another forum, or post, or any other social media, or whatever. We simply haven't had enough issues here over the years to justify any linking restrictions.

    Thanks for clearing that up Jon, I did not think there were restrictions on that but I am not one to break the rules.

    Cheers, JR
