MCQs on Slip Gauges Accessories

1 - Question

Which of the following is not a slip gauge accessory?
a) Measuring jaws
b) Holder
c) Rod clamp
d) Base

Explanation: Slip gauge accessories are measuring jaws, holder, base and scribing & centre point. Field of application of slip gauges is extended by using these accessories.

2 - Question

How many types of measuring jaws are present?
a) 1
b) 2
c) 3
d) 4

Explanation: There are two types of measuring jaws i.e. Type A and Type B. Type A is for both internal and external measurement and type B is for external measurement only.

3 - Question

What is the error in overall dimension when a pair of jaws wrung together?
a) Should not exceed ± 0.0007 mm
b) Less than ± 0.0001 mm
c) Should not exceed ± 0.0001 mm
d) Should not exceed ± 0.001 mm

Explanation: When a pair of jaws wrung, overall dimension error should not exceed ± 0.0001 mm.

4 - Question

Which of the option is correct for given statements about measuring jaws types?
Statement 1: Nominal sizes of measuring jaws are engraved on front end face.
Statement 2: In Type B measuring jaws, no dimension is important.
a) Only statement 1 is true
b) Only statement 2 is true
c) Both the statements are true
d) Both the statements are not true

Explanation: The most important dimension is the measuring jaw size. In Type B, the most important part is the wringing face not the dimensions.

5 - Question

Which of the following is the range in which holder is available?
a) 0 to 60mm
b) 200 to 250mm
c) 250 to 350mm
d) 350 to 400mm

Explanation: Holders are available in three ranges i.e. 0-60mm, 50-110mm and 100-210mm.

6 - Question

How much deviation in height of base is acceptable from marked dimension?
a) ± 0.001 mm
b) ± 0.007 mm
c) ± 0.0007 mm
d) ± 0.0015 mm

Explanation: Height of base is accepted within ± 0.0007 mm deviation from the marked dimension. The base should remain stable when used with the longest size holder.

7 - Question

What is the value of hardness for slip gauge accessories?
a) 600 HV
b) 700 HV
c) 750 HV
d) 800 HV

Explanation: Steel is used to make slip gauges and should be defect free. It should be hardened uniformly up to the minimum hardness of 800 HV.

8 - Question

Which of the following option is correct for given statements?
Statement 1: Slip gauge and its accessories can be used as a limit gauge.
Statement 2: Slip gauge and accessories can be used for the measurement of plug gauge but not for ring gauges.
a) T, F
b) F, F
c) T, T
d) F, T

Explanation: They can be used as a temporary limit gauge. They are used for the measurement of a ring and plug gauges, inspection of precision equipment and for marking out tools etc.

9 - Question

What is the value of flatness for the surface upon which slip gauges are wrung?
a) 0.0001 mm
b) 0.001 mm
c) 0.01 mm
d) 0.1 mm

Explanation: Surface should be flat within 0.0001 mm and parallel to the base within 0.0002 mm.

10 - Question
