It works and whats better than that? Question, is the plastic (?) material heavy enough to hold the indicator still while rotating the cutter head?

Nice!
I made something similar with magnets on the bottom of the base.

to answer your question Tad I slide the gauge from L to R or viceversa when checking my blades one blade at a time and reference off a line I have drawn on the outfeed table always makin sure my jig is clean and goes back to zero after every move, and the gauge inner workings are very precise it takes very little pressure to move the dial, this is an industrial gauge very precise too precise for me really
