Bevel Gauge

The most common instruments used to check angles are the:

  1. bevel or bevel gauge
  2. Universal bevel gauge
  3. bevel protractor

1. Bevel gauges

The bevel gauges cannot measure angles directly. They are, therefore, indirect angular measuring instruments. The angles can be set and measured with bevel protractors.

2. Universal bevel gauges

The universal bevel gauge has an additional blade. This helps in measuring angles which cannot be checked with an ordinary bevel gauge.

3. Bevel protractor

The bevel protractor is a direct angular measuring instrument, and has graduation marked from 0° to 180°. Angles can be measured within an accuracy of 1° using this instrument.
