    Dial Indicator Holder

    Dial Indicator Holder, made to mount in my Noga. For ID and OD. I know Starrett makes one but they are kind pricy. So I just made one 1/2" square steel, a few set screws, a few scraps of stainless for the rods.Dial Indicator Holder-dialholder1_1.jpgDial Indicator Holder-dialholder2_1.jpgDial Indicator Holder-dialholder3_1.jpgDial Indicator Holder-dialholder5_1.jpgDial Indicator Holder-dialholder6_1.jpgDial Indicator Holder-dialholder4_1.jpg

    Nice job on the machining and the blued finish. I am looking forward to your video on bluing tool parts.

    What is the approximate distance tip to tip on the part that swivels and also the approx. diameters of the spherical probe tips?

    I am interested in how the swivel probe was machined. Do you use a ball turning tool for the probe tips or a custom ground form tool?
