The difference between taperlock style and reversible style thread plug gages

The taperlock thread plug gage style allows for a quick and convenient replacement of the gage member into an existing handle. A worn gage member can be simply removed and a new replacement inserted into the handle.

The reversible thread plug gage style allows for one end of the gage to be rotated so the user gets two gages in one. A worn gage end can be turned around by simply opening the collet of the handle and turning the gage and bushing around so the opposite end essentially becomes a new gage. The reversible thread plug gage is ideal in high volume inspection applications.

Both Thread Check’s reversible and taperlock style thread plug gages are manufactured per ANSI/ASME B1.16M ( metric ) or ANSI/ASME B1.2 ( inch ). Both styles of thread plug gages are manufactured to an X tolerance. Both styles are available in M, MJ , UNC, UNF, UNEF, J and specials. Reversible and taperlock style thread plug gages are stocked in hard chrome coating which extends the wear life of the gage by more than a 100% thus providing dramatic savings in replacement costs. All Thread Check, Inc. gages are manufactured to the high end of the tolerance to ensure longer gage life. Thread Check, Inc. manufactures both taperlock and reversible style thread plug gages in carbide, ceramic and other types of specialty steels. Thread Check manufactures many types of special gages including pre-plates, multiple starts, special leads, acme threads, buttress threads, square threads, extra length thread gages, and custom gages to print. All thread plug gages are traceable to N.I.S.T.
