I've been wanting a certain Noga configuration for a while now. Problem is, Noga does not make it. I've had this idea for a while now & I finally decided to make it happen. Hopefully Noga sees this & starts making it.

I love the 360° fine adjust on the NF1024 but it's over all size is just too small for me. I love the DG size but I'm not a fan of the fine adjust on top. My favorite personal favorite Noga to use on the lathe is the DG10533 (FAB).

This is what happens when a NF1024 meets a DG61003. Now I can indicate the OD & face without having to reposition the base. Sure I could just reposition the base.....anyone who remembers me knows that I have more than enough Nogas so why not.

And that's why I prefer the anti-gravity model Nogas & anti-magnetic indicators! ;)

I have been been meaning to build me a anti-gravity generator to use in the shop with my regular indicators & holders. But I'm currently tied up building my EB Enterprises 121G kit. I've got places to go, things to fix, & I'm running outta time! ;)

I'm going to build a hybrid Noga using 2" diameter rods with gussets and an over head support beam. ;)

Where can I get a clamp without a fine adjust for my noga?
