  • What Is A "Noga Arm"?

    I found a reference to this on another board.

    http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/thr...73#post1064973

    Look at post number 2518. It talks about a QCTP holder for a Noga Arm. What is a Noga Arm?????

    And were any Nogas harmed making it?

    Make it fit.

              Only one, but I had to harm another noga to get another arm. They only have two each, and I figured I should leave the poor thing one to comb it's hair with.

                The name rang a bell, but not in conjunction with arms. I had to google Noga and remembered deburring tools used on the bench section of my old firm.
                Funny that mag base arms has come up, I have been looking at cheap Chinese knock offs on eBay at under £15 as the Mitutoyo ones I use are hard on my arthritic fingers.

                    I would avoid the cheap knockoffs in the Noga style. The ones I have used don't move smoothly and hold well, even with the knob cranked. The genuine article and it's European brethren move smoothly and lock up with little force on the knob. I haven't touched the knock off since I got it, and will use old style rods and snugs in preference. I only keep it for two reasons: I wouldn't want it to fall into some unsuspecting proto-machinist's hands, and pure spite, so I can sneer at it.

                        Well I could claim to be dumb, but in truth, I made my own devices to hold indicators and such. Not as fancy as those Nogas, but they do work. I used split cotters. Works great.

                        Besides, I am here to learn and I learn new things here every day. 10K posts implies long time membership, not specific knowledge. Besides, nobody knows everything.

                        On the other hand, I do know that Noga is a proper name and should be capitalized. I learned that over 60 years ago. It is a shame that so few seem to know such a simple thing today.

                            There is no such thing as a stupid question.
                            They can always be answered with stupid answers.
