Can't find this tool

Hello all, I have been searching for a certain tool and cannot find one anywhere. What it is, is an indexing tool. I know that they make (or used to make) them years ago. The one I'm looking for would clamp on to a shaft and as you turn the shaft a dial would indicate the angle at which you are at. I had a chance to buy one a few years ago from a guy at a yard sale but I passed it up. Now I wished I hadn't.....The closet thing I've seen is made by Greenlee Tools and is used to bend conduit. I'm not sure if this is accurate enough or not.The one at the yard sale was a Swiss made one I think. He had a set of tools there and he said that one tool was worth as much as the rest of the tools combined. I'm beginning to believe him.....

No, not quite like that but thanks for the offer. It acts more like a pendulum type thing. When you turn the tool (which is clamped to the shaft) This tool will indicate the angle at which the shaft is currently positioned at.I'll keep looking.....
