Internal Variable Gages

Bi-Point™ Gage

The BI-POINT Internal Thread Gage is a widely adjustable thread measuring instrument. Only two frame sizes are required to measure from #10 (M5) through 5″ (M125). One goes from # 10 through 2½” and the other from 2⅝” through 5″. The measurement resolution is .0001″. It can be used bench mounted or hand held.
A specific set of gaging fingers is required for each thread size. The BI-POINT Gage can be changed from one thread size to another in less than three minutes. The following gaging fingers are available:
Thread CharacteristicANSI/ASME Gage #
Functional Diameter4.1
Pitch Diameter (per size)4.5
Minor Diameter (per size)5.2
“VARIMINOR” (.190″-2.5″ adjustable)5.2 Variable
Runout (P.D. to minor)4.7
Lead and Flank Angle4.8
The BI-POINT Gage meets all of the requirements of ANSI/ASME B 1.3M, MIL-S-7742, and MIL-S-8879.
The BI-POINT Gage is set using a solid threaded master ring gage. The master ring has three certified sizes on it: pitch diameter, functional diameter, and minor diameter. The gaging fingers must be set to the corresponding master ring certified size.
The result of a long form Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility Study for the BI-POINT™ Gage was 13% with the pitch diameter gaging fingers and 15% with the functional diameter gaging fingers.
