On the plus side, recertification for surface plates is generally pretty inexpensive, even if they need lapping.

We bought a surface plate at auction that already had fasteners installed. Everyone in inspection hates it because pins and other small things fall into the holes. We plugged them up.

Hello everyone,

I thought I would share pictures of a little project I just completed. Basically I put fasteners in a plain jane 12 x 18 surface plate.

Hey does anybody think the calibration is still valid?

--Erik
Nifty pics and it appears to be a good job.....unfortunately the calibration is void.

Oh, and don't use it to cal depth mics and rods.....you achieve at best a 1.5:1 ration and even that is questionable.....

Hope this helps.

Are you estimating MU factors when you say that it shouldn't be used to calibrate depth micrometers?

I should add that the depth micrometer's resolution is .001". If you are using a 1" rod and have zeroed the instrument properly, you could probably explore its resolution nearer the .0001" capability of the micrometer head, of course, non-digital depth mics only show discriminations of .001" anyway.

Also, please let me note that I do not like this setup. It is useful, but it's a monster setup just for calibration of one instrument type. If there is a better way, one with less MU factors, one with less setup, please share this knowledge.
