Damaged Leveridge repair?


#1

Does anyone have a surefire, accurate procedure to recondition bent
pointers on a leveridge (poor thing took a tumble) gauge that will
maintain both measurement precision and parallelism? (yes I admit I
had to look up that word)

Yes, it’s called buying a new one. I’ve had the same thing happen
repeatedly and always curse myself out at the added expense I’ve
just managed to run up.

We had a similar occurence with a Leveridge guage. We called the
company and got the address to send it in for repair. It wasn’t
cheap, but it was cheaper than a new one.

Finally figured it out. The tips were bent into somewhat of a hook
shape. It was a simple matter to hold the measuring edge against a
bench block and using a hammer handpiece on the other edge, forge the
tips straight again. Pointers are sharp and edges parallel.

It should be good for another 15 years.

If some fumble fingered fool (me!) doesn’t drop it again.
