I finally got around to building an easy-to use dial indicator holder for my bandsaw fence. It’s useful when I need to change the thickness of the veneer I’m cutting.
I started with a scrap of oak about 1.5 inches thick with one surface absolutely flat. I cut slots in it as shown.
And I drilled two 1/4” holes at the drill press.
Four shallow holes on the (absolutely flat) underside accept 1/2” x 1/8” magnets that are epoxied in place. They are about 1/64” below the surface of the wood.
A coat of shellac protects it.
This scrap of 1/4” thick plastic provided material for a lever.
An inexpensive Grizzly dial indicator complete the project. Here is the plastic lever in action
I hope you enjoyed it.
