Dial test indicators, also called lever-style test indicators, lever-style dial test indicators, lever-arm test indicators, finger indicators, or simply test indicators, use a hinged lever rather than an up-and-down plunger to measure displacement. The contact point on the lever is placed against the surface of the workpiece or feature being measured. The measurement is then amplified onto the dial face. They are commonly used to reach areas that are otherwise inaccessible to dial drop indicators, such as in narrow grooves and small bores. Dial test indicators have little drift for higher repeatability and stability in measurements. They typically have higher accuracy than dial drop indicators over a small range. They are commonly mounted to a holder or other fixture with a dovetail mount for stability.
