The Description of bore gages
Bore gages are comparative instruments designed to check hole diameter and condition. Dorsey bore gages use the principle of two point gaging and three point centralization. The contacts are diametrically opposed which provides the most accurate readings. Using Dorsey bore gages with two point measurement allows one to “Explore the Bore”. That is, determine the bore configuration / condition such as, bell mouth, taper, out of round, barrel shape or hour glass shapes.
To Use: The gage is inserted on an angle for easy entry into the bore. The centralizer feature insures locating the true diameter. The bore gage is “rocked” and the indicator is observed to find the lowest reading to obtain the true diameter reading.
