    Dial Gauge mount for Chuck

    Had to square up my new milling machine vice.Had a dial gauge I used to set the vernier pulleys for my race car, but no magnetic base.
    So whipped out this little adapter that goes around a 8mm drill that goes into the chuck and then you can run the dial against a parallel clamped in the vice.
