Saker Contour Gauge is designed to copy or record the exact shape of irregular shapes when you install carpet or tile in an area surrounded by stairs, furniture, and plumbing materials. Recording the exact shape helps the floor designers make a perfect cut, leading to finished and precise work. It comes with a double scale copier i.e. inch and centimeter to provide accuracy in measurement. As compared to regular contour gauges it is 5.9 inches wider, which helps to replicate bigger areas.
Saker Contour Gauge can capture irregular, tilted, curved shapes and help you make accurate cutting. It works simply by pressing the tool against the shape you want to capture. It consists of a set of ABS plastic pins tightly assembled in a frame. This frame allows the pins to move or slide on pressing them against an object horizontally to capture the shape.
Saker Contour Gauge is high quality and manufactured by using an upgraded aluminum mandrel and ABS plastic, hence it provides more durability. Apart from that, it is rustproof and the high-definition laser cutting lines help clear and easy-to-read measurements.
At 5.9-inches wide and 10-inches long, Saker contour gauge is capable of taking deeper impressions than most contour gauges, allowing you to contour large objects, such as plumbing pipes and door frames. A lock switch holds the pins firmly in place after it has contoured an object, allowing for easy tracing. An adjuster on the side lets you alter the tightness of the pins. The Saker Contour Gauge comes in 10-inch and 5-inch sizes.
Saker Contour Gauge offers durability and accuracy, making it one of the top contour gauges on the market.
