The Brown & Sharpe 599-610 Dial Depth Gauge for Small Holes, Indicator Type, has a measurement range of 0 to 0.650", and a resolution (or smallest graduation interval) of 0.001", with + or - .001" of accuracy. The dial gauge interface provides precise and easily readable counterclockwise measurements. This depth gauge has a rounded base (0.625" in diameter). Additional round bases and indicator mount collets are sold separately. The shipping weight for this gauge is 1.25 lb. Depth gauges are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.
Depth gauges are precision measuring instruments used to determine the depth of any shape that has a step, groove, or slot. These gauges often take the form of sliders that travel on a measuring beam or rods, are moved to position by hand, and then adjusted with a calibrated screw. The base of the gauge rests at the top of the shape whose recession is to be measured, while the beam or rods extend to the bottom of the recession to determine the measurement. Gauge position is read from a graduated scale, dial, counters, or an electronic display.
Brown & Sharpe manufactures precision measuring equipment and metrology hand tools. The company, founded in 1833, is headquartered in North Kingstown, RI.
