Recalibration of an old-style tool, used for setting up Trudril collet assemblies, previously required complete replacement and readjustment of the drill stop. The new-design setup tools incorporate a laterally-movable drill gage block 11, where turning a positioning screw 12 moves worn spots on the gage surface "off-site", while simultaneously moving an unused portion of the drill gage surface "on-site".
