In my April/May-1999 issue of Traditional Bowhunter there is an article on making a spine tester using a Dial Indicator to measure deflection. I plan to make one but am concerned about the shaft slipping off the top of the indicator stem. I am sure I can come up with something but just wondered if anyone has done it already.

havent done it. Do you think you could take a 9mm casing and saw it in 1/2 and mount it to the stem to act as a cradle?

I've been using an inexpensive dial indicator from LittleMachineShop.com, which came with a set of tips and an articulating mount. A flat tip works fine once you have the stem aligned with the arrow shaft.
