Abstract:

The purpose of this program was to modify, improve and fabricate a Dermitron gauge for measuring the thickness of chromium in caliber 0.30 gun barrels, based on a prototype developed by the National Bureau of Standards. The NBS prototype gage proved the feasibility of measurements in the 0.30 caliber bore. However a redesign was required in order to make this gage suitable for production inspection conditions. Features of the new design, which represent improvements over the prototype, are described. Author
