Snap Gages

A Snap Gage is similar to a Micrometer GO / NO GO Gage. The Snap Gage is a C-shaped frame with an Indicator attached. It has a fixed anvil on the bottom, and a top anvil that moves up and down with a lifting lever is attached to the Indicator. This allows the operator to very quickly verify the outside dimension of a part.

The Indicator can display the deviation from a preset dimension, or some digital indicators can have a preset value entered, so the value on the indicator can be the actual dimension measured.

The Snap Gages available here on are light weight and easy to use, but are also shop-rugged and ready for use out on the factory floor.
