PRECISION MEASURING TOOLS
a. General. Measuring tools are designed for measuring work accurately.
They include level indicating devices, noncalibrated measuring tools (calipers,
dividers) for transferring dimensions, calibrated measuring tools (rules, tapes,
micrometers) designed to measure distances in accordance with one of several
standards of measurements, gages which are machined to a predetermined shape and
size for measurement by comparison, and combination tools such as combination
square designed to perform two or more types of operations.
b. Rules. All rules (scales) are used to measure linear dimensions. They
are read by a comparison of the etched lines on the scale with an edge or surface.
Most scale dimensions are read with the naked eye, although a magnifying glass can
be used to read graduations on a scale smaller than 1/64 of an inch.
