Perfect for checking/setting tailstock alignment/offset when paired with Edge Tech's Tailstock Alignment Bar. Even better if you've got your own lathe and you can lock the height in a toolholder to centerline.
Tool Post Indicator 42-000
Reduce set up time with the Tool Post Indicator by Edge Technology. This unit is much faster to install and more rigid than a mag base indicator holder. It is the best way to align a work piece in a 4 jaw chuck.
- High resolution 0.0005" indicator included.
- Mounts in any tool post tool holder.
- Body made from high strength aluminum.
- Durable anodized finish.
- Includes padded case.

Wow. Is this useful. No more fiddling with setting up a dial indicator with its stand and holder for quick checks of a work piece in the lathe. Why did I not decide to have one of these sooner? At the price, anyone can afford a good, extremely useful tool like this.
works very well on my lathe
WOW! Beautifully made and incredibly handy to have for the lathe. Nice tools are a joy to use.
You don't know you needed one until you use a few times and wonder how you did without it.
This is a one of a kind item for these people. Very nice and nice package and it works great. The only improvement would be to add a little arm when checking things very close to the chuck on a large machine. Putting the operation arm to the left of the product would help also. It is great and there is nothing like it around.
I have been machining parts and making tooling for over 30 years. So far, all the Edge Products that I have used seemed to be very well made and very well thought out for fit and function with the machinist best interest, even on their wallet. Definitely this lathe tool post indicator is nothing short of awesome. It clamps in quick and easy, even into a smaller tool post holder and the large dial is easily read to quickly aid concentricity adjustments for chucks or machining parts. Another great feature is the durable and form fitted case to keep indicator stored and protected when not in use. As always, I Highly Recommend!
This is definitely one of my favorite tools.
