Its possible the "as cast" painted,rounded surfaces of a press won't offer a good surface for a magnetic base or a clamp type indicator holder to work.
Having a hobby lathe and mill makes it easier to work around those limitations.

You can then take a piece of stock,like maybe 1/2 by 1/8th cold rolled,or,what you have,do a little bending and drilling to make a bracket that you can attach to the drilled and tapped hole(s) and your indicator back. You can design one that will hold your indicator in optimum position.
My version isn't exactly like that, but similar. Same principle.
