This is a mount which we designed to connect a dial indicator to the JG AURORA A5 printer for the purpose of bed tramming (leveling) that uses economical dial indicators such as this one http://amzn.to/2ttaAGr for less than $15 bucks or a digital version such as this http://amzn.to/2ttaIWr for only $25 bucks. Also you can use a metal 1/4-20 (~6mm) sized nut and bolt combo however I like using nylon nuts/bolts such as these http://amzn.to/2saaeRh just to lighten things a bit.

Also if Interested in getting your own JGAURORA A5 check out the deals on Gearbest for them here https://goo.gl/efnSH4 as these folks have been great to work with and are huge supporters of the 3D Printing community!

Just about any!










You will need to print with supports due to the shape this and you might need to clean up some the edges for the press fit as it needs to be tight because on the one side it basically touches the X-Axis stepper motor. Also worth note is it will put pressure on the sheet metal fan housing and might make the fans squeal so you might have to squeeze the metal fan casing after removal to stop the noise.
