Abstract

The gauging tool is for visual inspection for uniform pin lengths as, for example, pins employed for forming contacts in electronic modules. The tool constitutes gauge plate 1 having a plurality of slots 2 extending lengthwise of plate 1 and which are disposed in closely spaced side-by-side relationship. Slots 2 are loaded with pins 3 in end-to-end relations, with the contacting ends of the pins forming a gauge line or sight line transversely across plate 1. If all pins 3 are of equal length, the gauge line is straight as at 4. If one of the pins is shorter or longer, the gauge line deviates at 5, 6, and 7 in the slots containing the faulty pins 8, 9, and 10 and at succeeding gauge lines in the affected slots. The identified faulty pins 8, 9, and 10 can then be removed.
