Project Information

Well, if you have a table saw, you have to check the alignment each time you replace the saw blade. (That is if you have OCD when it comes to alignments.)
And if you have contractor saw, you have to check it out even more frequently.
Hence dial indicator caddy. This has absolutely no play in any direction and the magnets keep if flush and provide extra grab and the side adjustment screws insure snug fit in track. All other screws insure no movement when calibrating the dial gauge to zero.
I've made few of these in the past but this one is by far most accurate using both analog and digital readers.

Pretty darn nice.
I like the extra touch of adding the magnets.
Good idea.

If you make a vertical arm, you can use your dial indicator to dial in the depth of your saw cut. It also has uses on your router table.

I have made these through the years but the little magnets are a stroke of genius!

Nice work!

Cool gadget. I had to make something similar to work with my pals kit. When good just isn't good enough. OCD is catchy.
