1150Z-6 Dial Indicator Snap Gage 53170

1150 Dial Indicator Snap Gages
Dial Indicator Snap Gage, 4-6", .0001", +10/-10 .040"

These compact gages have rigid aluminum alloy frames protected from hand heat by insulating handles. They are used to gage outside diameters to an accuracy of .0001". Dimensional variations are transmitted to the dial indicator through a linear friction-free transfer mechanism totally enclosed for protection against side thrust, foreign matter and coolants. Flat gaging contacts simplify measurement close to shoulders. The top sensitive contact may be reversed to present a spherical face to the work. An adjustable backstop simplifies centering the work. 4-6" Range, in Case.
