The gooseneck mounting on the dial indicator is just way too painful. I need something that is flexible and doesn’t get in the way of the machine..
Here’s a picture of what I am thinking about doing except it’s mocked up with wood. I think I will get a piece of metal that is right angle, mount one end under the screw at the base and screw the dial indicator to the bracket. This will be a single piece of metal. It needs to be adjustable for different chisel sizes.
Plumbers tape (hanger strap) to the rescue!
Alternating 1/4” and 3/16” holes for versatility. Galvanized. Rigid but bendable. Available at Lowes Depot 1/4” holes will work…
