Squareness Comparator Part 4
Over the last weekend I worked on the last couple of bits for the comparator gage. The indicator holder was the last major part of the gage needed before I can try it. Nothing too difficult with this part other than has a lot of extra cut features to reduce bulk and make it look a little lighter. Its made from 6061 aluminum which I will probably have anodized later on when I have a few parts to plate. Unfortunately I didn't have a slitting saw large enough to make the split clamp relief so I ended up band sawing it so I can test the gage. I know its a crude way to make the split but I left some material so I can go back in and clean it up if I can borrow a large diameter 1/8 saw.
