I was wondering what I was missing. Why pop the centre and use a pair
of centres when you can use a DTI? I have a few minutes I will set up a bit
of square and try and make a video if anyone wants to see it.

I set up a chunk of square, actually took longer to find a bit than
to set it up. The video is really crappy, I know what's going on cos
I was there;-) Holding a camera and doing something is too difficult
You should aquire a tripod then.
I did try with a tripod, the lathe has a window behind it and all you could see was the sillohette of the gauge;-)
What it needs is a flexible, but lockable, arm to mount the camera on.
Seeing the marking on a DTI isn't easy if the picture shows much of whats going on. I did a video of a gear that
had runout, to show the people who supplied it, I used a 4" face gauge so you could see it. I don't think I can use
the big gauge to set a square as it probably won't clear the corners.
So your using the corners as a means to centralise the block?
Moving the corners would be to complicated for me;-) I set up the flats.
