Hi Folks, I am after an Imperial Dial Height Gauge. I can get digital ones easily enough but trying to get an Imperial Dial one is difficult, Any ideas where I might get one ?

Depending on what style you want and budget, there's This One on ebay at the moment.

These are available from a few sources. What size do you need?

Alan, that was the international site that I posted. I believe they ship to the UK. Since I'm in Canada, I don't have detailed knowledge of any UK-located sources.

Perhaps someone else will now that they know exactly what you are looking for.

(I have one of these btw ..... wouldn't be without it).

I managed to ferret this out for a UK source. The same company has them on eBay UK too (lower price on eBay for some reason)..

Where it says:-

Range: 0-150mm

Reading: 0.02mm

might be slightly at odds with his requirement for an imperial one.

Is the eBay one imperial?

Ah ... missed the "Imperial" (sorry Alan). The eBay one is the same (Metric).

Just out of interest, what is the objection to a digital one? Best of both worlds?

Paul.

Hi Paul, I just wanted to get away from batteries and as I prefer working in imperial it seemed the way to go.. But I got one from Rotogrip.

Thanks everyone for the advice.

Rotogrip is a good firm, the gauge looks nice to me.
