I see a lot of guys at work always clamp their standard Mitutoyo indicators
on the dovetail above the clock (*top* of the indicator) or the one on that
back, behind the clock. They crane their heads around and get all
contortionist-like to dial in a hole.
One should always keep in mind that there is also a very handy dovetail
below the clock, on the front of the indicator. Using this dovetail, you can
adjust the indicator's point to be 90º from the body (basically sticking out
the back). When used to find a hole on a mill, the clock is facing directly
up at the operator no matter what the orientation of the spindle is, and the
point is always in the hole. No acrobatics required.
Just thought I'd share for people that haven't see an indicator setup that
Have a picture? Worth 500 words at least ..
