These precision test indicators were designed to be positioned for easy and accurate readability. The versatility of the angled head, combined with the three dovetail mounts eliminates the need for having both vertical and horizontal style test indicators.

Includes a dovetail body clamp, tool post holder, swivel post snug with dovetail indicator clamp, and a snug and rod unit.

For extreme accuracy we recommend positioning the lever contact so that it is approximately 15° from being horizontal with the workpiece

Chris Chris' Tips
At rest, an indicator’s needle points at a random position, usually in the 10 o’clock range. This is completely normal, as the needle’s position at rest is irrelevant to the use of an indicator.

An indicator is only useful when the tip is bearing against a surface to be measured. The action of pressing the tip against the surface moves the needle, also to some random position. But this position is relevant; turn the bezel so that the needle is pointing at zero. Now you can make measurements, both positive and negative, relative to the starting position.
