Product Description

Product Description

The Starrett S579HZ set of six telescoping gauges measures 5/16 to 6" holes, slots, and recesses in woodworking, metalworking, machining, layout, and pattern-making applications. The four gauges measure from 5/16 to 1/2", 1/2 to 3/4", 3/4 to 1-1/4", 1-1/4 to 2-1/8", 2-1/8 to 3-1/2", and 3-1/2 to 6". Each gauge has two spring-tensioned telescoping plungers for uniform contact pressure. The self-centering handles are rigidly attached to contact plungers. Five handles measure 2-3/8" and one handle measures 3-1/4" in length. A lock at the end of the handle secures the gauge width for measurement with a micrometer (sold separately). The gauge set comes in a protective case for storage.

The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company, founded in 1880, is headquartered in Athol, MA.

From the Manufacturer

579 Series Telescoping Gages are for determining the true size of holes, slots and recesses up to 6". Tools must be slightly "rocked" in the hole being measured to ensure that the tool is on the proper diameter before it is locked and withdrawn. The final hole size is obtained by measuring over the gage contacts with a micrometer.

Verified Purchase
Starrett tools are known to be great quality tools and one pays up to hold that quality. I have several Starrett tools and have felt their price was justified. However, my first impression with these gauges was different, and if you have the opportunity, you may want to compare with other in hand. Regardless, the telescoping mechanism works well. No binding. Read about proper technique if unfamiliar: Slightly tighten up while gauge is at a slight angle, rotate pass the diameter once, extract, and measure with a mic or caliper.
