Over the past 3 or 4 decades, we have sold hundreds of sets of Tri-roll thread gages to fastener manufacturers and fastener distributors around the world. Tri-roll gages are simple to use, and when they are properly set-up and operated will provide a great deal of valuable information during manufacturing as well as final inspection. lead, angle, etc. If you attempt to use a work plug to set up a tri-roll gage, you in effect diminish the accuracy of the results. Will Any Thread Class Set Plug Work For Tri-Roll Set-Up? The question; Must the Tri-roll gage be set-up with the setting plug having the same class of thread as the threaded product being measured? has come up many times over the years from both new, as well as experienced Tri-roll gage users. The answer is “NO”. One of the benefits of using Tri-roll gages is that the gage can be set-up using a setting plug of any thread class to measure a threaded product having any thread class. The only thing that must be the same is the thread size, i.e. an M6 x 1.0 setting plug must be used to set-up a set of M6 x 1.0 gaging rolls to measure a product having an M6 x 1.0 screw thread. The gage itself is “classless”. Working plugs should not be used to set up a Tri-roll gage. The reasoning is that work plugs are not made to the same accuracy as a set plug when it comes to pitch, TECHNICAL ARTICLE 1/4-28 3A GO SETTING PLUG WITH .2267 CERTIFIED PITCH DIAMETER CONTINUED ON PAGE 118
