The MasterGage Classic shares the same superb workmanship and precision manufacturing quality as the Professional. The only difference is that the Classic model does not have the Protractor or the "Instant Recall" features. The MasterGage Classic can Align - Calibrate - Troubleshoot - Tune Up - and Set Up/Reset Up all wood working machinery that require non-angular measurement.
Like the MasterGage/Professional, the height gage feature of the MasterGage/Classic has three sets of scales permanently laser etched into the aluminum body. They are fractional inches (to 1/32"), decimal inches to (to .020") and millimeters (to 1/2 millimeters). All scales are precise to within thousandths of an inch. The top and bottom of the classic body have extruded "T" slots. These "T" slots allow special Accessories such as magnets to be easily added, thus expanding the capability of your measuring and set up requirements.
Like the Professional, the Classic is made from the same heavy walled aircraft quality aluminum extrusion, precision ground on all sides within 0.001 inches. The unit is then machined on CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) machinery to tolerances of 0.00020 inches. These extremely close tolerances insure glass smooth motion and precision fits of all parts.
The MasterGage/Classic is 4 inches long, 3 1/2 inches high and 2 inches wide - a perfect fit in the hand with a nice balance. The Classic weighs one pound with the dial indicator mounted. The Classic is a powerful tool, yet very "user friendly".
