Metrology, Measurement & Marking Out
Metrology, Measurement & Marking Out Tools
Measurement is an important part of engineering, woodwork, construction, and many other industries. It includes things like weight measuring and graphical representation.

Metrology is the field of measurement, covering accuracy, precision, and repeatability. It also covers traceability or comparisons with a “standard” or between different measurement systems.
Be able to distinguish between construction lines and cut lines. Use a marking gauge on wood and plastics or odd-leg calipers on metal and plastics to mark lines parallel to the true edges. Mark out as clearly as possible in order to avoid mistakes. Always shade the waste accurately.
Micrometers can make extraordinarily precise measurements. They are able to measure incredibly small amounts and are supplied in a compliance case.

Control rulers are gauges measuring the accuracy of measurement. They are most often used to measure sliding control, head alignment, and geometric checks of reference surfaces.
- Engineers Rules
- Class II Rules
Squares And Bevel Protractors
Our bevel protractor can measure or mark off angles. Vernier scales are added to some of our products for more precise measurements wherever required.

Feeler Gauges And Gauges
Studying gaps between objects can be difficult with ordinary tools, but not for feeler gauges. Testing devices consist of copper-beryllium alloy strips, which are shaped like a finger. The strip is flexible and easy to use and doesn’t produce sparks or electrical emissions, so it’s safe for sensitive materials.
Our robust scribes are commonly used in machine shops and manufacturing. Scribing is a manual process that produces designs and lines on the surface of metal, before the steel is cut or machined.

- Steel Scribers
Punches are used to emboss a number or letter into the metal and other surfaces. Our outstanding designs are most often used with the metal being imprinted as the reverse of what is created. This allows them to be read regardless of whether it’s negative or positive.
- Letter And Digit Punches
- Square Punches
Short Length Tape Measures
Our short steel tape measure consists of a metal blade to measure distance, a protective case that can fit in your pocket, a stop button to hold the measurement when you come across an obstacle. It also has a belt buckle. When using the steel tape measuring tool, you should be sure to remember two points: place one hand at each end of the tape and extend the tape to measure in between both hands.

We provide levels to accurately define horizontal (level) or vertical (plumb) with excellent accuracy.
- Engineers Level
- Builders Levels
When it comes to folding rules, we use jointed or zig-zag rules. These rules can be folded up and taken with you wherever you go and can be used in small and confined spaces.
There are many different types of squares available so you can get the one that suits your needs the best. Our squares are an essential tool for carpenters and joineres because they ensure things are measured precisely.
- False Squares
Builders Marking Out
We offer a wide range of marking and setting out equipment, which will help with new construction. Our equipment can set up markers that guide everything from roads to bridges on the construction site.
