The Measuring Iron, as its name suggests, is used primarily as a fixed vertical reference surface from which work locating and machining measurements can be conveniently taken. Provided with standard removable keys and t-bolt, it can be quickly aligned with machine table slots and clamped in position. Machinists and toolmakers find that the Measuring Iron is a valuable accessory for precision boring operations. When clamped adjacent to work mounted on the machine table, with its vertical face parallel to a test plug in the spindle, it provides a positive means of measuring the location of the table or work. The narrow width of the Measuring Iron offers a convenient means of clamping work for machining, especially where table room is at a minimum. No. 9202 Measuring Iron is especially recommended for this use.


Measuring Irons are made of close grained cast iron, thoroughly seasoned and carefully heat treated for maximum stability. Each tool is furnished with two precision aligning keys and one t-bolt with nut.
