I'm sure this has been done many times before, but I thought mine turned out pretty good. I turned a #2 Morse taper stub 1" long on some 1-1/2" 6061 aluminum, bored an 8mm hole for a Noga mini arm, knurled a generous flange, and popped in a set screw. It holds the arm and indicator very securely, and goes in and out easily.
