Starrett AccuBoreClick image to enlarge

The 781BXT AccuBore is a new trigger activated two point and three point extended range contact electronic bore gauging system from Starrett.

AccuBore is a high quality, trigger-activated, two point and three point contact bore gaging system with extended range. Its convenient single hand operation provides speed and control. Simply squeeze the trigger, insert the gage into the bore and release the trigger for an instant reading from the large, easy-to-read digital display.

What makes AccuBore superior to other gages are features like the mechanically-driven parallel anvils which extend simultaneously, establishing a truer alignment to the axis of the bore. This provides consistent pressure, resulting in more accurate readings than models with spring-driven contacts which are subject to pressure variations.

Speed and convenience are further enhanced by the repositionable AccuBore indicator, which may be swiveled and rotated for left, right hand or even vertical viewing. The gauge also features a set of "Go/No-Go" lights in the readout display that quickly indicates whether a bore measurement is within a preset tolerance.

Features:

  • · BlueTooth capability
  • · Single-hand operation with right and left hand viewing
  • · Large, easy to read display
  • · Enhanced wear life with carbide-faced contacts
  • · Convenient “Go/No-Go” tolerance indicator lights
  • · True alignment with mechanically driven parallel anvils
