A Countersink Gage is a precision measuring tool used to measure the angle and size of a countersink or chamfered hole. Countersinks are typically used to allow screws, bolts, or other fasteners to sit flush with a surface, while chamfers are used to remove sharp edges or to make it easier to insert components into a hole or slot. Countersink Gages are commonly used in the manufacturing, aerospace, and automotive industries.
Countersink Gages typically consist of a probe or shaft with a precision-ground conical tip that matches the angle of the countersink being measured. The probe is inserted into the countersink, and the size and angle of the countersink are then read off a calibrated scale or digital display on the gage.
Countersink Gages are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to accommodate different types of countersinks. Some gages have fixed tips, while others have interchangeable tips to accommodate different countersink angles and sizes. They can also be manual or automated, with some models featuring motorized probes for increased accuracy and ease of use.
Countersink Gages are highly accurate and precise, typically capable of measuring countersinks to within 0.01mm or better. They are often used in quality control and inspection applications to ensure that countersinks meet precise specifications for size and angle.
Overall, Countersink Gages are essential tools for accurately measuring and verifying the size and angle of countersinks in a wide range of applications.
