Test indicator accessories

made in Switzerland for Bestest, Interapid, Compac, Tesatast
and all other high quality test indicators

 

 

We are pleased to offer you the following selection of top-quality Swiss-made test indicator holders and attachments. If you've been burned by cheap holders that won't fit, you'll appreciate these holders made by Tesa in Switzerland.

Although specifically designed for Bestest, Interapid, Compac and Tesatast indicators, these holders and attachments will work with any manufacturer's indicator that has a dovetail.

If you'd also like to see a high-quality Swiss-made indicator stand go to page 126.

TM8 (01840106) swivel stem with Ø 8 mm shaft shown above

Swiss quality and design: attaches to the dovetail portions of all your test indicators. The stem portion can then be attached to any number of fixtures and holders. The swivel holder, with a 15mm long stem, shown above, rotates freely (±30°) in all directions until tightened into the desired position. It can be used on any brand of indicator that has dovetails (Mitutoyo, Starrett, Bestest, Interapid, etc.) including generic low cost indicators.

Angle holder

 

Cylindrical shank allows test indicators to be held at right angles. The thumb screw tightens down onto an 8mm or 3/8" stem attachment on your indicator. Made in Switzerland by Tesa.

  • 8mm diameter x 25mm long (bore = 8mm) 01840406 (18.40406) ... $64.00
  • 3/8" diameter x 1" long (bore = 3/8") (B&S 599-7043) Tesa 01850406 (18.50406)... $64.00

Rectangular or cylindrical shank

 

Works in conjunction with a clamp. Order the items separately from the list below. The clamp attaches to any dovetail. The rectangular or cylindrical shank fits into the 5.6mm diameter hole on the clamp (shown below). Tightening the knob will tighten both the rectangular shank and the dovetail at once.

This indispensable universal holder for lathes and height gages has been newly redesigned by the manufacturer. They replace the former Compac model SP and SPA holder. The rectangular or cylindrical shank attaches firmly to any dovetail (any manufacturer) and then clamps into the tool post holder or into the height gage. The indicator can swivel into many positions and then stays securely fixed when the knob is tightened. It will also accommodate a dial indicator with a standard 3/8" diameter stem. It's also an ideal way to calibrate both your test and dial test indicators when used with a height gage and some gage blocks. Order one shank (rectangular or cylindrical) and one clamp shown below. Swiss-made.

Interapid Indicator Swivel Holder

 

axialsupport1

This versatile Swiss-made mounting stem (axial support) shown in the diagram above is 5-1/4" long and swivels at two points. The two joints allow for multiple positioning. One end has the dovetail attachment and an opening for the Interapid 4mm stem. An allen wrench (not supplied) is used to tighten the clamp. The other end has a mounting rod which can be gotten in two different diameters as follows:

 

A note of interest: there is a limited swivel of about 20% between the two leftmost joints on this holder. If you're at all handy with a Dremel and an abrasive sanding drum, you can modify the corners of these joints to give you complete side-to-side swivel.


 

Interapid Reducing Sleeve (adapter)

 

Interapid indicators come with a 4 mm diameter stem attached to the end of the instrument. This elegant Swiss-made sleeve, shown in the photo above, will fit over the stem so that you can attain different diameters. You can use this adapter on any 4 mm stem–Interapid or otherwise–to increase its diameter. The choices are:

  • 3/8" adapter (74.108943) 074108943 ... $27.50
  • 8 mm adapter (74.108942) 074108942 ... $29.50

Stem Adapter Sleeve (bushing style)

 

This metal sleeve will fit over your 8 mm diameter indicator stem so that you can hold it with a 3/8" clamp or holder. Some of the best quality dial indicators only come with metric dimensions, so this adapter will be an absolute necessity if you're working in an imperial environment. Swiss made.

  • 8 mm to 3/8" sleeve 03560101 (35.60101) ... $21.50
