This tool is the "baby brother" of the 254 Master Vernier Height Gage. It is essentially the same tool, but a much lighter version for normal use where heavy duty applications are not practical. The 18" and 450mm models weigh 3-1/4 lb (1.5kg). No other height gage features this favorable combination of design, weight and accuracy.
READABILITY FEATURES • Long, 50-division vernier scales that can be read to .001" or 0.02mm without a magnifying glass • Flush-fitting of the vernier scales to the main scale eliminates parallax • Easy-reading sharp black lines and figures against Starrett satin chrome finish background • The scriber and the base are designed so that the gage will read directly from zero
• Slides easily for quick adjustment and has a screw type adjusting nut on the bar for precise positioning
• The design of the hardened and stabilized bar plus the balanced design and weight of the base eliminate vibration
• The base is hardened, ground, and lapped and is hand shaped for sure grip and easy movement • The vertical bar is positioned near the center of the base for balance and stability • Ability to scribe lines, measure with dial indicators or electronic probes and accept depth attachments • The auxiliary scriber is a circular carbide scriber – cuts sharp, clean lines smoothly – rotatable for wear
