Guide to Checking Block Wear

Using Your Micrometer


Remove “AA” micrometer bracket from the setting gage.


Remove “AA” barrel from bracket and replace with a stop pin (dowel rod with a flat milled on 1 side).


Move “A” micrometer bracket to back of setting gage (normal location of “AA” micrometer bracket).


Place bracket which now is holding the stop pin on the side of setting gage (normal location of “A” micrometer bracket).


Place block (without chaser and serrated bushing) backwards in setting gage.


Run block in until button on stop of block rests against flat on stop pin.


Position and advance a micrometer so that it makes contact at the block cam wear area.

This will allow you to check the difference in the block cam wear. This dimension is not to exceed .0025 within a set of blocks. if the wear on the block is greater than .0025 you will experience difficulty finding and holding proper pitch diameter, and you will experience premature opening of the cup.
