Contour Gage - 10" #833
The 833 10 In. Contour Gauge can duplicate any shape instantly. This profile gauge creates an instant template for curved and odd shaped profiles simply and easily.
Never transfer profiles to paper or cardboard again. The contour gauge makes measuring and cutting easy. Reminiscent of a hair comb, the tool - also known as a profile comb - features a row of long, thin, movable teeth and a perpendicular housing that holds them in place as they take an impression of the surface.
Ideal for measuring moldings for reproduction, duplicating spindles on the lathe, fitting flooring around moldings, copying curves and a variety of other contour matching jobs around the home and shop. It fits around most common pipes and round columns and allows you to easily copy shapes to tile, laminate, engineered wood, solid wood and vinyl flooring to precisely cut flooring to match objects.
The gauge eliminates the guessing of dimensions of irregular shapes.
The Contour Gage is equipped with a ruler on the body with both inch and millimeter graduations making measuring easier while getting the job done right!
