Axminster Precision Centre Finding Rule Marking in the middle. A centre finding or centring rule is unique in having the zero mark in the middle with scales running outwards both left and right. This saves time in finding the middle of boards, circles, anything you need to cut in half or for such things as mounting pictures and photos. The most important feature is that there is no need for mathematical calculations. Not only are they useful for centring but also as a left hand/ right hand reading rule they are exceptionally useful when setting out. Our rules have one side with the centring scale on the top edge and a standard scale on the bottom edge. On the reverse the top edge is a standard scale and the bottom edge a centring scale. All graduations are photochemically

etched, black filled and marked every 10mm in a clear, easy to read font. The rule is 25mm wide, 1mm thick, hardened and tempered Japanese stainless steel with an anti-glare satin chrome finish. All our rules conform to EC accuracy Class 1 standard, guaranteeing a high level of accuracy. 300mm 600mm

The square has a Sapele stock, with a double-waxed finish. Heavy gauge, solid brass facing strips protect both working faces of the stock. The blade is stainless steel, with precision ground edges, top and bottom. The blade and stock have a triple brass rivet fixing for permanence. The inside and outside faces of the stock and the edges of the blade are guaranteed parallel. This quality construction ensures that the square is square, internally and externally.

The ever popular 64R rule. The 64R rule is the benchmark and practically everyone has used an example at one time or another. As a general rule the 64R has always been our most popular. One side has metric graduations, with one edge in millimetres and the other in half millimetres, figured every 10mm. On the reverse side both edges have inch graduations, sub-divided into 1/16ths, 1/32nds, 1/64ths, 10ths, 20ths, 50ths and 100ths. The rule reads from zero, left to right. They have a hanging hole for safe or convenient storage.

Axminster Precision Square Designed and constructed for everyday use, this reliable square should always be close to hand at the top of the toolbox. The British standard BS3322 for carpenter’s squares specifies squareness on the inside edges only. These Axminster Precision squares go one better; they are square ant the inside and the outside.

64R Rustless Steel Rule

Engineer’s Squares Engineering precision for woodworkers. An engineer’s square gives you four 90° angles: internal, external, outside blade to inside stock and inside blade to outside stock. Compare this to a carpenter’s try square which only guarantees accuracy on the internal angle. Our engineer’s squares comprise a stainless steel blade, triple riveted into a steel stock. The hardened and tempered blade and the high quality steel stock are ground and polished for accuracy. Final polishing makes the rivets virtually invisible. All Axminster Precision Engineer’s squares conform to DIN875/II, guaranteed square and straight. The size stated is from the inner edge of the stock to the tip of the blade. The small notch on the inside corner of the square prevents accumulations of dust and dirt, small burrs or saw whiskers on the workpiece affecting the accuracy of the reading. Supplied in a foam lined case. Inc.vat Ex.vat Code 80mm £11.95 £9.96 102457 130mm £14.95 £12.46 102461 170mm £19.96 £16.63 102462 225mm £21.95 £18.29 102463

13 Blade Metric Feeler Gauge Gauge the gap. Use this gauge to check flatness or gaps between mating parts. The holder contains 13 blades ranging from 0.05mm to 1.0mm, blade length is 100mm. Each blade has been hardened, tempered and polished. Clear etching of the nominal thickness on each blade makes for easy identification. To gauge intermediate thicknesses stack 2 or more blades together. When not in use, fold the blades back into the holder for safe keeping. Thicknesses are 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25, 0.30, 0.40, 0.50, 0.60, 0.70, 0.80, 0.90 and 1.00mm. Inc.vat Ex.vat Code Feeler Gauge £6.95 £5.79 102119

Tools destined to become heirlooms. The stocks are H-section bronze with a hardwood infill. The blades are stainless steel with a matt chrome finish. The blade sits in a slot cut into the H-section, permanently secured by three brass rivets. This metal to metal fixing method ensures accuracy as squareness is unaffected by changes in humidity that could affect a wooden stock. The hardwood infill makes this a more attractive tool. Manufactured in accordance with British Standard BS3322/IS 4017, the squares are fully tested to a tolerance of less than 0.01mm/10mm blade length, both inside and outside. The stainless steel blades feature a millimetre scale on both sides and both edges. The EC Class 1 scale begins at zero on both the inside and outside edges. The bronze stock means these squares are heavier than a normal equivalent. However, they are robust and offer greater stability. Supplied in a foam lined box. A tool you can pass onto the next generation.

D Head Protractor

Dial Test Indicator

180 degrees of precision.

Engineering with sensitivity.

Here is a tool which is a reliable design tool for the measurement or transferring of angles. Made from stainless steel, the Axminster Precision Protractor takes the guesswork out of measuring angles, transferring angles or setting bevels. The protractor head has clearly etched graduations reading from 0° to 180° left to right and right to left. The pointer has an etched mark on a bevelled edge to avoid errors due to parallax. The 145mm adjustable protractor arm locks firmly into position with knurled thumb nut. Head length 90mm, arm length 145mm.

The Digital Test Indicator is used for measuring eccentricity of rotating parts and for setting work accurately in the lathe. The spring loaded arm, which has a spherical end for accurate location on the work, moves up to 1.3mm either upwards or downwards from the central position for maximum flexibility of use. The 30mm diameter dial is calibrated in 0.01mm steps, making this a very precise instrument indeed. There is a choice of either 6mm or 8mm mounting stems which slide onto a dovetail strip on the back of the indicator body.
