Re: Calibration of a Width Gage Slot with an Attribute Gage - Maximum Width Condition

Buy spares. They will disappear. And if you're concerned about .0001, there may be wear issues if they see a LOT of use.

I would think the gage block/pin method would be more reliable than your CMM, unless you have done this and demonstrated repeatability that supports your CMM data.

Disappear?

I'm at the point where finding a 0.2500 pin in an English set or an 8.000 mm pin in a metric set is harder than finding a unicorn. Not sure such sizes even exist..... I've never seen one ... :-)

Re: Calibration of a Width Gage Slot with an Attribute Gage - Maximum Width Condition

Are you having a hard time finding regular pin gages or something different? I may have missed something. If it's normal pin gages you need you can get them individually or in sets from places like:

I would definitely avoid using a scanning head CMM for regular checks as well, even with proven repeatability. But verifying now and then they can do a lot more than they used to.

Have somebody custom machine you a few and plate them.

Or not ... spend money to solve a challenge or live with the risk, somebody chooses.

Those common sizes should be put into gage handles so they are harder to lose. Like these for example.

This is just an example - I have no affiliation with the company and you can get these from many places.

ncwalker,

It looks like the humor of searching for "common" sizes was lost on this crowd.

Re: Calibration of a Width Gage Slot with an Attribute Gage - Maximum Width Condition

it's not necessarily harder to lose, just easier to spot in a place it shouldn't be. My company is in the process of converting all plug/pin style gages to be contained in handles.
Unfortunately, being in a handle, doesnt make them more likely to be put away in their proper location for next time.
