--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Quality control inspection tool for gauging acceptable lengths of small cylindrical parts, for use by individuals with unsteady hands or only one hand, or for those with difficulty learning to use a micrometer. Allows inspection for fine tolerances. Plywood and steel gauge with a shelf on a spring set within a tapering U shaped opening which is marked to indicate the acceptable range of lengths. The cylinder to be measured is placed on the shelf within the width of the U and the operator pulls down a peg handle that lowers the shelf until the cylinder is caught by the narrowing end of the U, and checks the gauge to see if the length is correct. Includes drawing and description of one application. Useful to demonstrate the concept that quality control tasks can be performed with the use of simple worksite adaptations.
