Striker for a dial gauge on the WM 180 lathe

A little while ago I 3D printed a clamp that positioned a dial gauge to fit on a Warco WM180 lathe.

I have now finished the striker plate that should improve the repeatability of the dial gauge readings.

Made from a bit of T-shape mild steel.

It fits on to a conveniently positioned M6 bolt. The original bolt is M6x20mm , I had an M6x25mm in my stock to fit in it's place so the addition is not weakening the assembly at all.

Lastly, cold blued.
