Wanted: Bore Gage

Post by 83hurstguy » Tue Mar 12, 2019 9:11 pm

Looking to purchase a bore gage for measuring bearing clearances. Prefer a Sunnen if I can find one, would also consider a Mitutoyo 545 if someone has one.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, the Sunnen is best, but sort of a must to get the setting fixture with it, and that's bigger bucks.

I've got a Mitutoyo which might be for sale. I'll get photos for you.

If you find a Sunnen gage and want a setting fixture, I have an extra one, I would like to sell.

PM me if interested.

I own several of each and personally I don't think the Sunnen is any better than the 545 and in fact
the 545 leaves less of a mark on bearings.

Thanks for the responses so far, still looking if anybody else has one, particularly a Mitutoyo 545.
