Radius Gauge (Gage)
A radius gauge, also known as a fillet gauge, is a tool used to measure the radius of an object.
Radius gauges require a bright light behind the object to be measured. The gauge is placed against the edge to be checked and any light leakage between the blade and edge indicates a mismatch that requires correction.
A good set of gauges will offer both convex and concave sections, and allow for their application in awkward locations.
