item#: SMP055

Shimpo FGV-500HX Digital Force Gauge delivers the same performance as Shimpo's FGV-X line of force gauges in a heavy-duty case. This allows them to withstand larger capacities, ranging from 200-500 pounds. This Shimpo force gauge is extremely accurate, making it ideal for even the strictest tolerances. The same sensing shaft measures both compression and tension forces for all-in-one convenience. Scroll down for more features and specifications.
