    Mini Vernier Height Gauge / Scriber / DIY Height gauge



    Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel. This is a video about how to make a simple height gauge / scriber using a stage.A height gauge is a measuring device used for determining the height of objects, and for marking of items to be worked on.These measuring tools are used in metalworking or metrology to either set or measure vertical distances, the pointer is sharpened to allow it to act as a scriber and assist in marking out work pieces.Height gauges may also be used to measure the height of an object by using the underside of the scriber as the datum. The datum may be permanently fixed or the height gauge may have provision to adjust the scale, this is done by sliding the scale vertically along the body of the height gauge by turning a fine feed screw at the top of the gauge; then with the scriber set to the same level as the base, the scale can be matched to it. This adjustment allows different scribers or probes to be used, as well as adjusting for any errors in a damaged or re sharpened probe.In the tool room, the distinction between a height gauge and a surface gauge is that a height gauge has a measuring head (whether Vernier, fine rack and pinion with dial, or linear encoder with digital display), whereas a surface gauge has only a scriber point. Both are typically used on a surface plate and have a heavy base with an accurately flat, smooth underside.I hope you enjoyed this video and where able to learn something from it as well. Thanks for watching, have a great time making and enjoying these projects as I do Universal Scale Models

    Rare for me to turn up the sound on a video, but that Jazz was just too good to miss. Nice tool build too!
