    Suunto (Finnish) makes an inclinometer with a dial face and an eye view port. (PM 5/360 PC)

    Yeah, that software is amazing. Full Disclaimer: I'm in no way affiliated with anything on that site. No way I've got the smarts to put together that kind of program. 😜 Just trying to be helpful by passing along the information. Gotta be careful with it though, or you can burn up half the night just exploring the features!

    Or print your own dial if you need an odd size or configuration:

    Look for an old hilger watts clinometer on eBay, accurate to seconds, big tungsten pendulum inside

    I've got a plastic one like that, with an integral 90* corner and vee block. Pretty handy for fab work sometimes. Didn't know there were "precision" ones like that. Pretty neat. Not sure I'd have much use for one (my cheapy plastic one works great for my needs) , but could see it being handy once in a while on large fab layouts and such with a mag base.

    Pretty simple thing. Just a weighted dial pointer. Maybe a good do-it-yourself project. McMaster-Carr makes printed degree protractor dials:

    Or print your own dial if you need an odd size or configuration:

    Are you looking for the degree indicator, or are you looking for someone who makes something similar to the Reglus Universal Drilling Jig that utilizes that dial?

    Maybe, but you have to stay within their 90 degree range.

    It is only intended to resolve 1 degree steps, for many jobs that would be ideal.

    It'd be a pretty neat thing to mount to an angle plate. Save some sine bar setup time for when it just gotta be good enough.

    Not sure they would be a lot different,if the info I’ve read on the Reglus Qaulity is accurate.This Swiss company was always noted for being on the high end quality wise,I thought maybe Mitutoyo or Starret may have made similar in pre digital era.
