Using the Height Gages

The basic steps of using a height gage is much the same to vernier calipers. Most often when you measure with a height gage, you will use an indicator so that you centralize using your eye rather than using feel.

When you use the depth gage attachment, you make depth or height measurements past obstructions. When you need to make several depth measurements, you might find it easier to work from a whole centimeter or inch than from a decimal. To do so, hold the rod against the surface plate and adjust the movable jaw to the nearest centimeter or inch.

After clamping the rod, recheck your measurement and carefully adjust as required.
