Rockler Radius Gauge Set

This set of compact, convenient gauges lets you quickly measure both concave and convex curves. The gauges are especially useful for checking the various diameters along spindle turnings, but they can also determine dowel diameters or help you choose a router bit for routing cove or bullnose moldings. When turning spindles to diameter, the gauge will slip over the turning when you have reached the desired diameter. There is no need to shuffle through a stack of thin metal gauges. All sizes on ours are accessible at once, and each size is clearly marked with a clear, easy-to-read engraving, along with indicator arrows that point to the appropriate diameter. Each tool includes both concave and convex gauges. Made from precision machined aluminum. The indicator ring in the middle rotates to point to the gauge you are using, a convenient safeguard against user error.

(1) Aluminum Radius Gauge, 1/16'' to 15/16'' diameters, in 1/8'' increments

Handy little tool
I have only had two occasions to use these so far but they sure came in handy when I did.

Radius Gauges
Have only had one chance to use them. Found them to be accurate. Kind of heavy to carry around so must add to bench tools.

So so if you are doing crude work.
It's ok but a radius gauge that is not machined accurate is less than useful. The smaller radii appear to be belt sanded and are not true radii at all. It probably happened because of the parting line of the casting. Not worth sending back but not worth the money.

Radius gages
Outside radii won't work on board edge. I wanted to be able to use it on the edge of a thick board to determine the edge-break radius. Worthless for this.

Looks like a time saver in making consistent size turnings, faster than calipers.
