Telescoping Gages are precision measuring tools used to measure the inside diameter of holes or bores. They consist of a central shaft with two or more spring-loaded legs that can be extended or retracted to fit inside the bore being measured.
Telescoping Gages typically consist of a handle or shaft that houses the measuring mechanism, with two or more legs that can be extended or retracted to fit inside the bore being measured. The legs are typically made of hardened steel and have a rounded or pointed end that allows them to make contact with the inside surface of the bore.
To use a Telescoping Gage, the user first selects a pair of legs that will fit inside the bore being measured. The legs are then extended until they make contact with the inside surface of the bore. The user can then lock the legs in their current location, then compare the distance from the tip of one leg to the tip of the other leg to determine the distance.
Telescoping Gages are highly accurate and precise, typically capable of measuring bore diameters to within 0.01mm or better. They are commonly used in quality control and inspection applications to ensure that parts and components meet precise specifications for bore diameter.
Overall, Telescoping Gages are essential tools for accurately measuring the inside diameter of holes or bores in mechanical, machining, and woodworking applications. They are simple to use, highly accurate, and versatile, making them an indispensable tool for anyone who needs to measure the inside diameter of bores in their work.
