High Precision Double Column Dial Height Gauge
This dial height gauge has a measurement range of 0” – 24”/0mm-600mm, and is precise to 0.001”, with + or – 0.002” of accuracy.
The height gauge has dual, resettable counters that additionally measure up and down distance changes, in 0.01” increments. A hand-operated feed wheel raises and lowers the gauge on the parallel beams, for ease of measurement. The scriber is used to mark a position on a workpiece, carbide-tipped for hardness and to help prolong life, and is held to the gauge by a screw clamp for fastening ease.
Height gauges, also called gages, are precision measuring instruments that travel on a vertical column to measure and/or mark the vertical distance from the base of an object in fine units.
The vertical position of the gauge and its attached pointer is changed by turning a calibrated screw, or one or more feed wheels. Recorded rotations are read from a scale, a dial, counters, and/or an electronic display.
A screw clamp holds the pointer to the gauge.
The pointer is typically sharpened to act as a scriber and can be used to mark a position on a workpiece by scratching its surface. On compatible units, the scriber may be replaced by an electronic touch-signal probe.
Height gauges are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.
