Care and Handling of custom length gages

  • Clean the part before gaging.
    Get rid of dirt, coolant, and chips.
  • Do not force the gage.
    Use light pressure.
  • Protect the gage from damage.
    Nicks and burrs allow inaccurate results.
  • Keep gages clean and oiled.
    This increases wear life.
  • Avoid handling gaging surfaces.
    Fingerprints cause rust.
