    Tool Post Dial Indicator Holder

    After seeing Paul Jones tool post dial indicator holder I had to have something like that. I have the same issue as Paul, no flat spot to easily mount a DI. So here was my solution. 6061 Alu, Stainless thumb screws.

    Randy,

    I like all the hole options for various positions on your DI tool holder. I also like what you did by reducing the diameter of the bottom post to the flexible arm. Your use of dovetails is the best way to do this holder. Thanks for posting this.

    A good use of the possibilities of your rapid toolholder, if you have enough time and some oldies in stock you can make a rapid angle finder adapted to your rapid system for a few bucks.
