Unit to Gauge Stock Thickness

Frame 1 supports switches 2 and 3 in proximity to arm 4 that is pivotally mounted at 5 and that carries roller 6 above complementary roller 7. Distance :AB of arm 5 is preferably a multiple, such as 10, of Distance BC.

One use for the device is in a punch press. Stock is fed at 8 between rollers 6 and 7. Switches 2 and 3 are set so that any movement of arm 4 will shut the press down. Spring 9 restores arm 4. Rollers 6 and 7 can be set to a given stock thickness, and switches 2 and 3 actuated with any variation of, for example, plus or minus
0.0002 in thickness.
