Rather than use the dial indicator on the exterior of the barrel, I installed a snug-fitting plug gauge and indicated off the surface of the gauge.
Pertinent Data: The plug gauge itself is designed for a given bore size and shape and can be modified to accommodate harsh testing conditions.
For example, when measuring a bore, a two-point diameter as measured with a micrometer, [3] a least-squares fit diameter as measured with a coordinate measuring machine, [4] and a maximum inscribed diameter as found using a plug gauge, will each yield a different numerical value because each measurement method realizes a different quantity permitted by the poorly defined measurand.
