Precision Ground Test Bars

A precision ground test bar, or spindle runout test bar, is the ideal tool when rebuilding, calibrating, or simply inspecting a machine.  A test bar is a must have when checking for spindle runout, inspecting way wear, or precisely installing a head stock.

Our precision ground test bars are made of hardened tool steel (something more?). Each bar surface is ground as part of a single machining operation producing a concentricity within .0001″. Test bars also feature threaded ends allowing for the convenient use of drawbar rods when installed in a spindle.
