Abstract : The patent describes a penetration gage for measuring the thickness of an elastomeric liner without removing the liner from the case. A pin is driven through the liner until it contacts the case; while holding the pin in contact with the case, a gage surface is lowered until it contacts the outside surface of the liner. The attitude is then adjusted to yield a minimum reading on the dial indicator.
