Bore gauge calibration standard

The bore gauge calibration standard refers to the setting master against which a bore gauge is set. The use of a bore gauge calibration standard may be overlooked by new gauge owners, but is a vital part of the process of precise measurement. By setting your bore gauge against a known standard, you ensure that your measurements are both accurate and precise. This process should be done before the initial use of the gauge as well as at regular intervals. There are a number of ways in which to find a bare gauge calibration standard depending on both your needs and your budget. A setting master tool, a master setting kit, setting rings, and micrometers call be used as a bore gauge calibration standard.
