They are a great little tool. Many years ago, Tesa were offering them with their finger dial indicators in a promotional offer. The kit came with shims to adjust the centre line of the indicator ball. It is a great exercise to make one as well. It is interesting seeing the different approaches to making the parts.

Nice job and useful addition, single process blacking looks simple to use.

Stefan Gotteswinter (YouTube) has posted some free plans to a similar device.

I'm making one at the moment - it's a nice little project...
