Precision Measuring

*This is a WIP.

Need a collection of tools and skill to be able to replicate parts for creating precision models to then use for manufacturing on demand and such.

I’m going to focus on metric measurements.


“Shop” vs “Inspection” quality.

  • Vernier or Digital Caliper
  • Micrometer
  • Bore Gauge, Gauge Pins
  • Dial Indicator
  • Gauge Block
  • Surface Plate
  • Straight Edges
  • Feelers

Machine Setup/ Calibration

  • Machine Level: For setup of machines
  • Calibration Bar: Aligning machines


Environmental Concerns

I’m not sure this is critical for our needs other than it makes sense to do important measurements and a machining in a fairly stable temperature.
