    The easiest dial indicator holder you've ever seen!

    Support for dial indicator 100% homemade. Made with old printer shaft and aluminum scrap.

    Joining another piece of printer shaft with 8.0 mm of scrap with a bearing number 608-2Z, we still could make an edge finder! Despite its a very old trick, it works perfectly and the cost is almost zero!

    And still using a magnet from a recent project, you get a magnetic base!
