How do you use a telescopic bore gauge?
Simply so, what does a telescopic gauge do?
Telescopic gauges are used to measure the internal diameter of a bore, hole or groove up to 150mm (6″) in diameter, for example camshaft bearings or connecting rod bore bearings. They are primarily used by mechanics measuring the bore size of a crankcase in an engine where the pistons move up and down.
Additionally, how do you calibrate a bore gauge? A micrometer can be used to calibrate the bore gauge. Set the micrometer to the desired size and lock. Insert the measuring head between the micrometer. A setting ring can be used to calibrate the bore gauge.
Likewise, how accurate is a telescopic gauge?
When using a micrometer to set a dial bore gauge, the accuracy of the measurement will be 0.002 inches or 0.0508 millimeters. When a dial bore gauge is set using a ring gauge, overall accuracy can be within 0.0001 inches or 0.00254 millimeter.
What is a depth gauge called?
A depth gauge is a pressure gauge that displays the equivalent depth in water. It is a piece of diving equipment used by underwater divers, submarines and submersibles. A depth gauge that measures the pressure of air bubbling out of an open ended hose to the diver is called a pneumofathometer.
