Low-tech way to check a chamfer at the machine

I remember in the past seeing chamfer gage sets (like radius gage sets) that operators could use to check the depth of a 45° chamfer at the machine (go/no) Any idea if these are still manufactured or not? Where to get them?
Thanks.

Well I don't know if there are sets out there. you might need to do some calling around...
Personally I'd use a six inch rule with an adjustable stop like the one HEREThis way it can be set and the operator can do the check.

Peace

You can go real old school with the double ball method. I don't recommend it...but it is out there as an option.

These work great on circular features, and I have used them often. I am looking for something to check .03-.04 x 45° callouts on non-circular edges....

Without knowing the application, I have to say that this sounds like a pretty specific callout for what sounds essentially like "break the corner" or "remove sharp edges....
How critical is this to fit and function?

Probably your best bet is to have a special gage made up.

Thanks for the reply James. Most likely, I will have to get gages made up. As to your question, I went back to review our print and P.O. and found no mention of fit or function... Never seen that on a technical print before.....

Are you talking about putting an edge champer on a sheet metal part? If so, we use a protractor and caliper for on line checks. A skilled operator can check amazingly close with these tools. It's pretty low tech too. :)
