Reviews

I have not used this tool yet but it arrived in very good time and perfect condition. It was a very good price substantially less expensive than from another supplier for the same item. I am assuming it will work very well for what I need it for.

12â steel scales are very handy around shop. I got one with the RV toolkit I bought and Iâm always looking for where I set it down. I bought two more to misplace around the shop ... even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile. Only complaint is contrast of the markings. While still very readable They do not contrast as well as my first scale.

I ordered both of these tensiionometers in two separate orders. The low tension one was at my house 2 days after I ordered it! I was so impressed with the speed of delivery and how well the tensionometer worked I ordered the high tension unit. Not so good....this one took 7 days to deliver, but it is still a good device.

Q&A

Q: Do the Burroughs cable gauges come with the certificate of calibration?

Yes, the certificate will be in the box.

Q: How long between calibrations should you go for these Burroughs cable gauges?

Supplier recommends roughly once a year.

Q: Dose Burroughs provide calibration services for there cable gauges?

No. Pinto would provide the calibration services for this product.

Q: What is the accuracy of this unit?

The accuracy of this unit would be + or - 5%.

Q: Does the rotor dail hold the reading so you may remove the gauge from the inspection opening and read it once removed?

After you measure your cable, when you let go of the handle it will spin back to its starting position. So it does not hold a reading after you measure.

Q: Does cable gauge 12-19210 measure the tension in the cable? We are pulling stuff with a cable and need to gauge the force.

Yes, you can read the tension on the rotation of the dial.

Q: How is it used? Do you just push the ball end all the way and then read the meter? Want to check 1/8 control cable on an experimental plane.

Yes, that is basically how it works.
