Dow Gage, LLC designs and sells the complete line of DOW-GAGES, including the Model 10 Bench Comparator, the TACOMP STUB, and a line of accessories for both.

DOW-GAGES lend themselves particularly well to the inspection of screw machine products, stampings, castings and molded parts. Tooling can be made to check lengths, depths, diameters, position (of slots, shoulders or grooves), angle of taper (both male and female), and many other dimensional characteristics.

All we need is a copy of your print with the dimension(s) that you need to check, for us to provide a quotation.

Featured Products

Products & Services

Our Engineering Department works closely with the customer to provide a sensible solution to the gaging requirement. From a customer supplied part drawing or sketch, we will develop a concept and furnish a quotation for design and manufacture of the customized Dow-Gage. Because we have been in business for over fifty years, our design files are a rich resource for finding similar applications and tested solutions.

A fully dimensioned “A” or “B” size drawing is furnished with each customized Dow-Gage at the time of shipment. Throughout the manufacturing process, our engineering department works closely with our skilled gagemakers to insure that the final product meets our exacting standards and produces accurate, repeatable and reproducible measurements.
