Today’s snap gages are as one would expect, advanced. They come complete with accuracy-focused and sophisticated features. Carbon snap gages for instance use carbon fiber for the handles. This makes it easy for one to handle the gage. It also improves precision as it is lighter than other snap gages.

Unlike other snap gages, carbon fiber snap gages are adjustable to a full 2”³ (50mm) of range. This perk alone ensures that one can measure thicker components with precision. They are also easy to use, so there is no learning curve at all. If you are searching for a carbon fiber snap gage, consider Starrett 5003 Carbon Fiber Snap Gages. Read on to find out more about the snap gage.

When it comes to measuring instruments, snap gages stand out for several reasons. First off, they are among the oldest measuring instruments. Then there is the fact that they are very simple to use. They make it very easy for one to measure thickness of components and the outside diameters of round parts like shafts. The very first snap gages featured fixed limit gages. This ensures that one could first confirm the part of the object being measured was within the snap gage’s size limits.

The gage also features two anvil sets. The first set was sized to the largest acceptable measurement while the other set was sized to the minor size tolerance. It is important to note that fixed limit snap gages cannot supply any variable data like approaching tolerance limits, data feedback, and actual size.
