Small Articulated Indicator Holder Feedback

Post by ctwo » Thu Nov 30, 2017 6:40 am

I bought one of the knock-offs on eBay, the little red one. It works fine, except the person doing the final grinding made the bottom into an arc, so I had to mill off about 30 thou and grind it smooth again. The magnet seems OK, but being so small it's not really suitable for a full size dial indicator. It will be really good for my DTI's and 1" indicators when small is needed. I am considering adding a fine adjust to the base.
