    Default Boice Gage


    A gage made by Boice Gages of New York that appears to be an indicating length gage. The head has a tenth reading dial indicator with a .030 inch range. The unit has a tapped body that accepts various anvils and extension pieces. By assembling various anvils and extensions the unit will measure from 6 inches to 24 inches, and any size in between. Included is the gage unit, 5 probes of various lengths, 3 small probes, 2 extensions, and what may be a setting piece. Included is a wood box measuring 3” x 5” x 21”. Wood inserts inside the box show damage and crude repairs, but the box itself is in good condition with no apparent damage. $200 OBO

    With only .030" travel on the indicator surely only will check every inch from 6" to 24" with nothing in between, yes or no? Reason I ask is it doesn't appear to have enough parts to cover anything but.

    It is a little hard to see in the pictures, but each of the "probes" has over an inch of threaded length that allow adjustments between the "full" inch sizes.

    John, I am interested in thi piece. Boice Gages was started and presided over by my grandfather Ralph A Boice. I would like better photos though if possible. It is not possible for me to see the condition of this gage from the photos supplied. Thanks

    Peter, if you click on John Allan's name you'll find there's an option to email him directly. Since he's not been on the forum since September that's probably a better way to get his attention.

    Good luck, cool that it was your grandad that started the company. Let us know if you have more info on the stuff he made.
