Welcome to our new type high checking gauge. Our engineers have suffered through the pandemic getting materials so we’ve looked for an alternative. These Type Height Gauges are printed from polymer resin, something we know a lot about, and like our plates are processed in the most environmentally friendly way as possible.
This version is designed for UK type height, 0.918″ (but keep an eye open for the Euro version coming soon).
Our type-height gauge is ideal for checking or confirming that the height of printing blocks, type, slugs of type, engravings etc are the correct standard height for letterpress machines.
To use the gauge, simply offer it up to the item – if it is a loose fit then the item will need packing added, if it does not fit then it cannot be used safely due to risk of roller or machine damage. A correct fit is a smooth, easy one, no effort should be needed at all to check the height.
Note: If the type or block is forced with any pressure then it is very possible that the gauge and/or block will be damaged, remember, a correct fit is smooth and easy:- no pressure is needed.
Standard UK letterpress height 0.918″ / 23.32mm.
Overall gauge dimensions –
55mm x 63mm x 15mm.
