Standard Gage 07724001 Dial Height Gauge with White Dial Face, 0-12″ Measuring Range, 0.100″ Resolution
The Standard Gage 07724001 dial height gauge has a measurement range of 0” – 12”, and is graduated to 0.001”. The dial display has a screw for manual adjustment of the zero position, and travels 0.1” on the beam for each revolution of the needle.
The hand-operated slider raises and lowers the gauge on the beam, and a calibrated screw mechanism supports fine, uniform slider adjustments. A lock screw allows the user to hold measurements. The beam is graduated in standard inch units and made of stainless steel. The scriber, used to mark a position on a workpiece, is 15.7 mm x 75 mm (H x W), carbide-tipped for hardness and to help prolong life, and is held to the gauge by a screw clamp for fastening ease. The grip-base helps hold the unit in position by hand. The height gauge comes with a fitted case and inspection report.
Height gauges, also called gages, are precision measuring instruments that travel on a vertical column (also called the beam) 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 are 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.
