Made from hardened stainless steel with deeply etched graduations, the Shinwa 700A taper gauge can be slid into gaps to measure them to a tenth of a mm - the marks correspond to the width of the gauge in mm at that point on the taper.
The 700A is a taper gauge, not a bore gauge, (bore gauges look similar but are graduated for the width of the hypotenuse through the body of the gauge). It has an integrated metal part case for protection and clip to attach to a pocket or apron.
A conversion table is provided on the reverse side of the 700A giving the equivalent readings for bores, taking into account the thickness of the gauge itself.
