Vernier Durometers

Part#: Model 1500
Supplier: Rex Gauge Durometers
Calibration Certificate: available on request

With its light weight and small size, the user can carry it at all times. Should it be dropped, even if not in its leather carrying case, it will not be damaged or become inoperative 99 times out of 100. Because the gauge is so durable, the Model 1500 comes with a lifetime guarantee. The key to the gauge's durability is its sliding vernier scale- there are no cams, gears, or levers to wear out. This vernier scale holds the maximum reading, and is especially useful for testing in hard to reach areas. The vernier scale is marked in increments of 5 points, and with a little practice, one can obtain readings to within 1 point.


  • Ultra lightweight
  • Excellent for hard to reach places
  • One Year Warranty
  • Virtually unbreakable
  • Precision construction
  • Holds reading until reset
  • NIST Traceable
  • Furnished with a leather pouch

how to use

Reset the vernier of the 1500 by pressing on the rest button at the top of the gauge. Grip the durometer like a pen and touch the indentor to the surface of the specimen. Then depress the gauge until the foot is firmly pressed flat against the specimen (but not so firmly as to imbed the foot into the surface of the material). The penetration of the indentor into the specimen has now moved the runner. The durometer reading is now indicated at the point where the lines on the runner and the stationary scale coincide. This occurs at only one point on the scale. When lines do not exactly coincide, a fraction of the five-point differential can be read as follows:
