Yes. The probe mounts to the shank with 4 screws and then a ball in the
probe fits in a hole in the shank. The screws don't pull up tight, you
adjust them like a 4-jaw chuck to centre the probe tip.

I used a BT30 boring-bar adaptor (they are cheaper than metal from eBay)
and fitted a adaptor to increase the diameter enough for the screws:

The MP3 is not a particularly small probe. If you have a tiny machine then
you might want something littler.
