    Lightbulb QCTP indicator holder

    I made this dial indicator holder to fit my AXA quick change tool post. It holds AGD and other type indicators. I made it out of 6061 aluminum. Works better than magnet.

    oldtimer,

    I really like your design and very practical because so often the QCTP is not set perpendicular to the work or the DI does not have easy access to the part surface. Thank you very much for posting this.

    Regards, Paul
