Power-Driven Rotary Thread Inspection Tool

The rotary thread inspection tool from Thread Check Inc. inspects screw threads for functional size and depth.

The rotary thread inspection tool from Thread Check Inc. inspects screw threads for functional size and depth. According to the company, the power-driven thread gage virtually eliminates operator fatigue and repetitive-motion injuries as the motor turns the gage. The portable instrument is designed for industrial use and includes high-performance, rechargeable NIMH “quick change” batteries for increased operating time.
 
A specified thread gage depth can be set to automatically reverse the tool out of the thread when the gage has reached the specified depth. The proper depth is confirmed by a green light indicator. The tool uses standard or custom taperlock-style thread plug gages that can be changed easily for multiple jobs, the company says.
