I decided I needed one of these indicator TP mounted centered to machine center. I saw this on a Darryl Hammond video. It works real sweet when using your test bar as it puts your indicator right at center so you will get a good reading. It will be used for much more. I have been wanting a good holder. I could have made a TP holder to use with the QC but that took more time than I wanted to give.

That bore to the left of the part was already there. I used a scrap hunk of 6061 that was an ingot and it had a hole thru. Not a problem except for looks.
I could have cut it off but thought maybe it would get used for something. How I hate to throw anything away! :)

Nothing wrong with that,and it even looks like the slot is supposed to be there.

Having an indicator on center is handy for setting tapers.
