Slater Tools’ product line of Go/No-Go gage sets for customer-specific applications are designed and engineered to inspect parts for machining process variations such as form size, twist and tool wear. They can be used with Slater Tools rotary broaches and the gages are held to tight tolerances, within 0.0002 inches (0.005 mm). They are produced from oil-hardened M2 high speed steel and can be custom made to any shape or size to fit custom needs, the company says.

All gages are offered for numerous shapes, either as full form composite, sector or progressive forms. Both plug and ring gages are offered for checking internal or external forms. The company offers long-form gage certification upon request for those applications and industries that require it.

Shape gages, such as hexagon and six lobe (hexalobular), are available as standards in both inch and metric dimensions. Custom plug and ring gages are also available with rapid turnaround times. Both standard and custom inspection gages are available as Go/No-Go sets or can be purchased individually.
