Just as for length, there are also for angles dimensional standards similar to gauge blocks available.
By combining angle gauge blocks with dimensions between 0 ° and 90 ° in steps of at least 1 second (special designs) any angle can be assembled.
As with parallel gauge blocks, this is done by pushing the measuring surfaces together.
This simplifies the measuring of angles, cones and angular divisions.
This makes it possible to set degrees, minutes and seconds precisely and quickly in any combination.
For example an angle gauge block set with 16 angle gauge blocks allows about 35000 angle combinations in a range from 0 ° to 90 ° in special steps of 1 second.
