Coax indicator design

(1/17) > >>

This  coaxial indicator design is one I've been working on for a while. The images shown do not include fixings or screwed joints.

 Before I commit it to metal, anyone have any comments on the ball angle changer ?

Hi And welcome Bill .

That's the whole reason for making it. My little Haighton hasn't much room below the vertical head. I wouldn't be able to get a Blake type in there.

However, I can't take credit for the idea, it was inspired by this clever design by PM member Wes43:

judging by the pin to the top/left of the DTI, it uses a lever to turn the movement 90 degrees.



I use one of the normal ones, and one of it's major faults is the length. In fact, I have made shorter probes to allow me to use it with my RT with the chuck fitted.

I suppose the angled design actually shortens it by over one inch, which has to be good.
