When you talk about the
need for accuracy, there will be at least two schools of thought. Some feel
that the high-precision accuracy of digital measuring tools is not necessary
while others like to know what is happening down to 0.001” or less if at all
possible. The folks at iGaging offer products that make high-level accuracy easier than ever. The
Depth Gauge is a
Snap Depth Gauge come with a CR2032 battery factory installed and
a spare in the package. It has a large, easy-to-read LCD display that make life
a little easier for those with older eyes. It has accuracy down to 0.001” and
resolution down to 0.0005”/0.01mm or 1/128”. This should be precise for most of
us, though some will undoubtedly think we are bordering on rocket science.
Other common sense
user-friendly functions found on the Snap Depth Gauge
are clearly labeled
ON/OFF, Zero and Unit Selection buttons. Zero is a useful function that lets
you reset zero at any point within the overall range of measurement. The Unit
Selection button lets you select between metric, plain numeric and fractional
displays of the measurements. The Hold function lets you take a measurement,
hit the Hold button and that figure is retained on the display. This comes in
very handy when you can’t see the display well while taking the reading or you
want to remember the measurement at a later time. After viewing the retained dimension you
simply press Hold again to cancel that function out.
Depth Gauge has a
measuring range of 0 to 4” which should cover measuring tasks you normally
encounter. The Snap Depth Gauge also comes with 1” and 2”-long,
screw-on plunger extensions to let you most appropriate length shaft for the
use the Snap Depth Gauge hold it with the base firmly in
contact with a flat surface and press the Zero button. Then slide it over the
hole, groove or ledge so the plunger can go to the bottom and read the display.
While the plunger is still at the bottom of the spot being measured you can
also press the Hold function to retain that measurement if the display is
difficult to see.
Depth Gauge also
has a mounting lug on its back side that allows it to be used like a dial
indicator. Just bolt it to a suitable base (shop made or commercial) and use it
like any dial indicator. In this mode the Snap Depth Gauge can be handy for checking runout on
tooling and many other shop needs.
If you are a fan of high
precision measuring instruments the Snap Depth Gauge should be of interest. It is a very accurate measuring device,
repeats well and is very easy to use. I can’t think of much more to ask from
My E-Bay philosophy is
simple, you are the customer and you decide how you want to handle the deal. I
will go along with most anything as long as it is not too outrageous and you
keep me informed. If it will be a few days before you get payment to me, no problem,
just let me know so I will not worry about it being lost. I do not have any
hard and fast time lines on what happens when. I work very hard to get all packages
to the Post Office the next day after I receive payment. If for some reason
that will be delayed, I will let you know.
All my items are shipped for free either USPS 1st class or
Priority shipping. I will ship another method to get it to you faster as
long as you and are willing to pay for the faster shipping.
