  • Surface gauge

1 marking dye blue

Marking blue is a dye used in metal working to aid in marking out. It is used to paint a metal object with a very thin layer of dye that can be scratched off using a scriber to show the bright metal

1. Marking DYE (blue)

2 scriber
2. Scriber

Scribers are used in metal working to mark lines on work pieces prior to manufacturing. They are used instead of pencils as the marks from pencils can rub off easily. They consist of a rod of steel that has been sharpened to a point at one or both ends. Scribers are used to draw shallow scratches on the surfaces of the work pieces.

types of scribers
Types of scribers:
  • One-end scriber as shown below
  • Double-end scriber as shown below

1- False

2- True


3. Punch

A punch is a hardmetal rod with a shaped tip at one end and a rounded butt at the other end that is usually struck by a hammer


a center punch
A-Center punch

It is used as an aid to drilling operations. A center punch forms an indent in which the tip of the drill will fit. A center punch has a point angle of 90°

b prick punch
B-Prick punch

It is used for layout. A prick punch produces a smaller indentation than a center punch, which acts as a useful datum point in layout operations. A prick punch has a point angle of 60°

c letter stamps number stamps
C-Letter Stamps - Number Stamps

These are used to print (stamp) a letter or number into a work piece

4 engineer s square
4.Engineer’s square

The engineer’s square is used for checking the straightness of a work piece. It can also be used for marking perpendicular (90°) lines onto a work piece.

5 surface plate
5.Surface plate

The surface plate has a high degree of flatness. The flat surface is being used as a datum surface for marking out and for measuring purposes. it is also called surface table If it can stand on the floor

Care to the surface plate


  • Keep the surface in a good condition.
  • Keep the surface lightly oiled to prevent corrosion.
  • Take care when placing marking out tools on the surface.


  • Place anything on the surface that would damage it.
  • Drop tools on the surface.
  • Hammer on the surface.
6 surface gauge
6. Surface gauge

The surface gauge is used on surface plates for scribing lines on work pieces and checking parallel surfaces and heights

7 angle plate
7. Angle plate

The angle plate is used to assist in holding the work piece perpendicular to the table. The angle plate is provided with holes and slots to enable the secure attachment or clamping of work pieces.
