Radius Gauge (Gage)


Two types of radius gauges

A radius gauge, also known as a fillet gauge,[1] is a tool used to measure the radius of an object.[2]

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.[3]

A good set of gauges will offer both convex and concave sections, and allow for their application in awkward locations.
