I purchased two camera mounts from an import tool dealer for $7 a piece. When received, I cut off the metric attachment bolts and welded them to SAE bolts to fit in some knock-off magnetic bases. The end result is a NOGA-style indicator holder for about $15 each as opposed to $100's. One tightening knob will hole the indicator in any position possible allowing for quick setups on the lathe or mill.
So sorry! I meant that the camera arms were actually NOGA style knock-offs. They can be had very inexpensively and "converted" for other uses quite easily. I cannot begin to tell you how great these are to use around the shop. Wish I had done this a long time ago. I had always placed the NOGAs as an expensive passing fancy of mine until now.
I got the magnetic bases from HF at a parking lot sale for next to nothing.
Here is a picture of the exact camera mounts I bought from the eBay:
