A ring bound radius gauge consists of individual multi-function blades held together by a ring. They are multi-functional as each blade is capable of measuring a concave and convex radius.
Ring bound multi-function blades work in the same way as the gauge set with multi-function blades attached to the hand-held tool at either end. The only difference is that the ring bound alternative allows the blades to be individually removed.
What are the advantages of a ring bound radius gauge?
The advantage of individually removable blades is that it may allow for quicker application or extra maneuverability against the work piece.
What are the disadvantages of a ring bound radius gauge?
The disadvantage of a ring bound gauge is that individual blades may be easily lost or replaced in the wrong order, making the correct blade selection a more time consuming process.
