Mitutoyo 187-904, Universal Bevel Protractor, 6 Blade, 5 minute Vernier Resolution Description
The Mitutoyo 187-904 universal bevel protractor has a dial with a built-in magnifying glass for readout of each 1 degree, a vernier scale for resolution to each 5 minutes, and a 6′ scale. It measures in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions, with a measuring range of 3 x 90 degrees. The protractor measures angles to accurately position a workpiece or to repeat specific angle cuts. The protractor has a built-in magnifying glass to indicate readouts of each 1 degree. The vernier scale increases the tool’s accuracy, with resolution to 5 minutes (1/12 of a degree). The scale includes locking clamps and a fine-adjusting knob for consistent measurements. The body is made from chrome-plated stainless steel for corrosion resistance and durability. The tool can be attached to a height gage, allowing additional measuring capacity. Specifications Scale length 6′ Readout interval for main dial scale 1 degree Readout interval for vernier scale 5 minutes Accuracy 5 minutes Protractors are tools that measure specific angles, allowing users to create and replicate desired angles. They include a stationary base and a movable rule, connected by a digital or manual scale. The scale measures in degrees and may measure more precisely to minutes, with 60 minutes equal to 1 degree. Protractors are suitable for a wide range of applications, such as measuring crown molding and installing baseboards.
