You mean something like Starretts 670 A & B Indicator Hole Attachments and 671 Universal Attachment. That said I always knew the 671 style beast as a Right Angle Attachment as that was the name given when I was first shown one.

while they can make-do

in a pinch. a stem indicator w/ this gadget has to have tremendous force compared to a test-lever indicator. i have a federal apparatus. with

needle bearings and a pear-shaped (anti-cosine?) tip. it sucks. no matter which indicator i clamp it to ( mitutoyo 1". helios 20mm. china no - name)

it's difficult to use. it does come in handy when setting up on a deep bore - when the bestest or last word 711 won't reach. but the heavy force

needed to drive the thing has to distort any expected accuracy.

i'd suggest buying a proper cheapo test indicator over a cheapo widget .
