Part of my cheapo magnetic dial indicator stand broke, so instead of purchasing a whole new el cheapo stand or an expensive new swivel connector, I designed and printed this. It fits a 10mm shaft, and uses an M6 x 35mm Pan head Phillips screw. It could easily be changed to use a hex head screw, or a socket head could be used. I've included the Fusion360 model for those who need to make mods.

Materials and methods

Part shown was printed with .2mm layers, 100% infill and a .42 extrusion width in PLA. If I need to, I'll print another in PETG. We'll see how it goes.
