pin gages - plus? minus? plz explain

28 Jun.,2022

I own a few boxes of pin gages. All of mine are marked 'minus'. I see you can also buy 'plus'. Why would you want one or the other? metalmagpie


Ceramic Pin Gauge

Because as manufacturers, we know there is no such thing as Zero.

Plus/Minus is just a preference. If you use a Plus pin you know which side of the Target you are on. Same thing with Minus. I prefer Minus, because I think it answers my question better, about how close to the Target I am.
