Every craftsperson eventually needs to cut a profile to mate precisely with an oddball shape. It is one of the most difficult and time-consuming tasks to do well. We proudly offer three unique profile gages to assist you in making high quality, gap free work.

Each of our profile gages offers exciting opportunities for accuracy not found in today's marketplace. The PG-5 Profile Gage is a single wire array gage used for general purpose profiling, a perfect size for molding work. The PG-10 Profile Gage is articulated for very long and/or deep profiles, and can be separated as two PG-5 gages. The PG-13 Profile Gage is an amazing multipurpose tool with two interlocking joints. This is the most versatile profile gage you will ever use and can be disassembled and used as a single section (like the PG-5) or a double wing profile gage (like the PG-10) . 's how they all work.... Using a Profile Gage

Each of our profile gages uses an array of "fingers" meticulously straightened from 0.030" (.76 mm) stainless steel wire-as small as function will allow. Spring tempered for durability, the finger arrays are held captive in a solid brass tool body by a CNC milled pressure bar. Working together they effortlessly capture the small details and intricate profiles needed to do quality work.

As you slowly press the gage against your work, the fingers align themselves to the profile. You are now ready to trace the exact profile to your stock. It's fast, accurate and amazingly easy. With either the PG-10 or the PG-13 (which are both articulated) , you almost always push the wire fingers into the profile from the back. The reason is simple-at any setting other than 180 degrees, the finger arrays are not parallel.

Even more unique, the PG-10 and the PG-13 are capable of capturing profiles beyond a centerline or "mirror axis". It's possible to "capture" the profile prohibiting removal of the gage from the profile! No problem simply unlock one section and remove both (or all three in the case of the PG-13) sections and reassemble the tool. The unique positive alignment of the joint allows reassembly in exactly the same configuration as the original reading! The PG-5 Profile Gage

This traditional profile gage features a working width of 4.82" (122 mm) and a working depth of 2.35" (59 mm).

Use the PG-5 for all molding patterns, model work, and furniture making. It is the perfect tool for linoleum and carpet cutouts, counter top cutouts, electrical and plumbing mating profiles and much more. One of my favorite applications is as a depth gage. The PG-5 (or any section of the PG-10 or PG-13) is particularly useful for seating hardware. Chisel the pocket for a hinge or lock set, take a "profile depth" reading and you will easily see the high spots needing further work. Another favorite application is custom drawer liners or tool racks. Profile your favorite tools and transfer to your stock to cut the profile away. This will keep your tools in a unique place either on the wall or in a drawer. It's very impressive when done well! The PG-10 & PG-13 Articulated Profile Gages
