A magnetic base is a magnetic fixture based on a magnet that can effectively be turned “on” and "off" at will. They are often used in optics and metal working, e.g., to firmly hold a dial indicator.
The magnetic base may have a notch cut into the bottom or the back of the base. This machined north allows the base to be attached to a round bar such as the column of a drill press.
