Veritas® Tapered Gauge
A tapered gauge gets its accuracy by effectively stretching any scale for accurate reading. These stretch the standard scale by a factor of seven. When a thickness difference of 1/8″ is stretched over 7/8″ of the scale, small differences in thickness can easily be measured with fine accuracy.
The aluminum gauges can be used many ways — for setting fences, router bits and drill-press stops, as well as making any gap easy to measure and, therefore, easy to fill — if you happen to be repairing work.
All are hard anodized, a process that makes the surface as hard to scratch as tool steel, yet leaves it easy to write on with a pencil. In most uses accurate to ±0.002″, they are guaranteed to have no greater error than 0.005″ in any measurement.
Simple, effective tools in the scale of your choice — fractional in 1/64″ graduations, decimal in 0.010″ graduations, and metric in 0.2mm graduations. All have fine tips (1/32″ thick) and measure up to 1-1/8″ (or equivalent) thickness. Each comes with a hard-shell case.
